From the recent FOTC mailing you know about the Empire State Dairy tile murals in Brooklyn, NY. After seventeen years of trying to get the City to Landmark the dairy building, the City has decided to hear arguments for landmarking in July, because the City is now allowing developers to gain easements in Brooklyn's East New York area. This may be the only time we will have to influence this decision.
The Friends of Terra Cotta and Michael Padwee are asking anyone who is interested in the preservation of historic architectural ceramics to send a postcard to the Commissioner of the Landmarks Preservation Commission asking the LPC to landmark the Empire State Dairy building and its tile murals (made by the American Encaustic Tiling Company, and probably designed by Leon Solon, in 1912/13).
If you wish to know more about these murals, go to these websites:
