Ken Fisher will explore the broad issues that bring the political process to bear on the operations and execution of the New York City Landmarks Law. The New York City Landmarks Law establishes a system for the designation, protection, and preservation of the city's most important architectural and historic properties. The law is implemented by the Landmarks Commission, which is mandated to work with the City Council in carrying out its mission of designating new landmarks. This program delves into the themes of the Museum of the City of New York's exhibition Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks.
