Here’s a reminder that the Landmarks Preservation Commission will hold a hearing tomorrow morning concerning the Bialystoker Building, the former nursing home that was shuttered moe than a year ago at 228 East Broadway. A preservation group, Friends of the Lower East Side, has been fighting to save the building from the wrecking ball.
Public testimony will be heard on the designation application but no decision is expected from the commission tomorrow. Initially the nursing home board opposed designation but a spokesperson for the board told us in December that they had dropped their objections. The board has been trying to sell the site for a luxury condo project.
The hearing takes place at 9:30 a.m. at the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s office, 1 Center Street. Anyone is welcome to testify for or against the application.
