- United States of America
Hi all. While this petition was never formally launched, it did attract some attention. Now that there is (apparently) significant work being done to the building, I'm closing this petition. For now. Thanks for your support.
It's been seven years since a fire burned out the apartment building at 92 Morningside Avenue. This beautiful, turn of the century, former luxury apartment building is located along Morningside Park at West 122nd Street and is one of a pair of buildings which are among the more elaborate facades in the city.
It is a tragedy that the buildings continue to languish in derelict condition considering the resurgence of the neighborhood.
Furthermore, it's become a health and safety hazard, having been cited for DOB violations on numerous occasions as has attracted criminal activity and vermin. (some excerpts taken from Harlem Bespoke blog).
We, the undersigned, call on the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission to designate 92 Morningside Avenue a city landmark in order to require that its owner restore and preserve the building in its original form with its distinct, historically significant architectural features.
