The Commissioner announced that they will accept statements from all parties via any of the above means of contacting them.
Make sure you include the building address, 45 Park Place, The Burlington Building, in the subject line of your statement.
Request a 9/11 historic district be created that would include 45-47 Park Place as its first landmarked building in the new district. Please make a separate request for the creation of the historic district as well.
The key points here are the historical, architectural & cultural significance of the site. Point out the significance of the Property in light of the 9/11 attacks, given the properties’ proximity to Ground Zero and the fact that pieces of one of the planes landed in the building. It was part of the attack. The landing gear of one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center towers flew out and into the Burlington Coat Factory building.
Don’t let the committee ignore these facts. It is outrageous and disrespects the victims of 911 by even considering that this building holds no significance .
Write, call, fax the Landmark Commission NOW and let them know that you deem 45-47 Park Place worthy of landmark status!
