Guest Opinion: Save Chelsea Protests DOB Demo Order

The NYC Department of Buildings shocked preservation advocates with an order to demolish the façades of the nine historic rowhouses at Ninth Ave. & W. 14th St., as seen in this rendering. Last year, the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the new tower shown immediately behind them as part of a development that would include restoration of the row houses. | Image via LPC and BKSK
