"Love Your Landmarks"
All Year Long!
For the past three years -- starting in 2010 -- LW! has spent the month of February showing our love for the Upper West Side's much-loved landmarks...
...Who's to say we can't show our love for landmarks all year long?!
With the Landmarks Preservation Commission's recent designation of the Riverside-West End Historic District Extension I (at public meeting of June 26, 2012), the family of West Side landmarks continues to grow. That's something to celebrate; Do it with "Love Your Landmarks"!
While you're picnicking in the park, bike riding along the Hudson, or sipping a cold drink at your favorite sidewalk cafe -- take this moment to tell everyone, "I Love this Landmark!" Join us as we call out the landmarks that make the Upper West Side so lovable! All it takes is a digital camera and your own inspiration
Head to the LW! blog now to see which buildings and sites people shared in 2010 and 2011!
