Letters of Support for Interior Landmark Designation of the Rose Reading Room

We are asking the Landmarks Preservation Commission to finally designate the Rose Reading Room and other public rooms in the 42nd Street Library as interior landmarks. You can support our campaign by signing our petition.

We are fortunate to be supported in our efforts by the local community board and the city’s leading civic organizations. Their statements of support can be found in the links below (in formation):

Community Board Five Resolution

Historic Districts Council

New York Landmarks Conservancy

New York State Senator Brad Hoylman

Municipal Arts Society

Mosette Broderick, Director of Urban Design and Architecture Studies, NYU
