The Cottages and Gardenat 78th Street and Third Avenue in Manhattan is an astonishing, historically significant site that deserves to be preserved.
The New York Times called it "one of the great multiple dwellings in the city..." and in a later article about the adjoining 7,000 square foot garden, "...a delightful amenity...a gracious touch in a city where public and private rarely mix." Singled out and praised since it was built in 1937, this site has never had a designation hearing or public scrutiny and is now endangered.
This site is being threatened and must be calendared immediately by the Landmarks Commission if we are to have a chance to preserve a beautiful and architecturally unique answer to 1930's New York!!
