Paul Graziano, Clip 6: Landmarking Proposal for Waldheim, Flushing
Collection: Queens Memory Project Collection at Queens College Libraries' Department of Special Collections and Archives: Paul Graziano
Description: Mr. Graziano describes how one of the first projects of the Waldheim Neighborhood Association was to get buildings landmarked, since they had lost many historic houses. Mr. Graziano surveyed and photographed them and created historic resource inventory forms for the state. He tried to get the New York State Historic Preservation Office to landmark these houses as well as the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, but both rejected his proposals.
