Save the IRT Powerhouse

The BRT powerhouse is pretty much toast by now, but the IRT powerhouse on West 58th Street in Manhattan is slated to go before the Landmarks Commission for a designation hearing in July. The IRT plant was designed by McKim, Mead & White, and has already been heard by LPC twice (first in the 1970s, then in the 1980s) – in both cases, LPC took no action. Its an incredible building (as was the BRT plant) – if you agree, sign the petition.
