NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission

Request LPC Records
The Landmarks Preservation Commission maintains several different types of records:
  • Archived material pertaining to the designation of individual buildings, interior landmarks, scenic landmarks, and historic districts
  • Drawings and other documents for alterations to landmarked buildings
  • Warning letters or notices of violation of the Landmarks Law
  • Materials pertaining to environmental reviews and pre-reviews

The Landmarks Preservation Commission does not maintain:

  • Original building plans for landmarked buildings
  • Tax photographs of landmarked buildings

Please contact the Department of Buildings or the Municipal Archives for these records.

With the exception of warning letters or notices of violation, you may review LPC's records in person, by appointment only, at the Commission's offices at 1 Centre Street, 9th Floor North, New York, N.Y. A staff member will contact you to schedule an appointment for records review, or arrange for copies of records to be mailed or e-mailed to you, after you submit a request by e-mail  or fax 212-669-3844
