CLINTON HILL — The Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to designate the 88th Precinct stationhouse an official New York City landmark.
The commission called the fortress-like building "one of the finest in the borough" at a public hearing Tuesday morning, NY1 reported.
The Romanesque Revival style building was built in 1898 by architect George Ingram and has served as a police station for nearly 125 years. The structure is well preserved and boasts a five-story turret and cone-shaped roof, according to the Society for Clinton Hill.
Advocates — including members of the Society for Clinton Hill — have been pushing for the red pressed-brick building at 298 Classon Ave., near DeKalb Avenue, to be landmarked since 2006.
