S. R. Smith Infirmary

  Staten Island Hospital Frost Building, Staten Island Hospital (S. R. Smith Infirmary), 101 Stanley Avenue, 1889, Alfred E. Barlow.
Heard 1991, but not designated by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The Commission's failure to designate and regulate this building led a string of failed developers to strip it of its detail and leave it in its current lonely state.
 

Jewett Carriage Barn

  Jewett Carriage Barn Jewett Carriage Barn, 2111 Richmond Terrace. A Request for Evaluation of this rare survivor by the Landmarks Preservation Commission has been denied.  

Disosway House

  Disosway House

Disosway House, 429 Clove Road, built ca. 1800.

This house doesn't look endangered, does it? It is beautifully maintained. However, every old house sitting on a large piece of land like this one is fair game for developers to demolish and replace with large numbers of townhouses.

A Request for Evaluation has been submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission. It is under consideration.

 

St. George Theater

  St. George Theater, 25 Hyatt Street, opened December 4, 1929. Architects: Eugene DeRosa and James Whitford. Owner: George Fakiris.
Seating 2,956, it is reputed to be the second largest stage in New York City. The interior is lavishly decorated in a Spanish style. The theater is not in use and its future is uncertain. The owner proposes to build a 17-story building on the lot next door.
A request for evaluation has been submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission. It is under consideration. There has been political support for its renovation, but no action to date.
