Commissioners

Otis Pratt Pearsall serves on the Public Design Commission of the City of New York as the representative of the Brooklyn Museum. A lawyer and preservationist for more than 40 years, Otis spearheaded the campaign that led to the designation of Brooklyn Heights in 1965 as the City's first historic district and worked closely with the Municipal Art Society to defend the Landmarks Preservation Commission in the Sailor's Snug Harbor case. Otis serves on the boards of the Brooklyn Museum, Green-Wood and the New York Preservation Archive Project; the Advisory Committee of the Brooklyn Heights Association; and the Preservation Committee of the Municipal Art Society. He has received a number of awards recognizing his leadership in preservation, including the Landmark Lion Award from the Historic Districts Council and the Lucy G. Moses Preservation Leadership Award from the New York Landmarks Conservancy.
