Nearly 300 buildings have been added to the Park Slope Historic District (PSHD) as of last Thursday when the New York City Council voted to approve the second expansion since the district’s establishment in 1973.

The City Council vote came after an April 2016 approval by the Landmarks Preservation Commission for the Phase II expansion, which runs along 6th Avenue between St. Marks Avenue and Sterling Place. Several other sections are also part of the extension, including Plaza Street West off of Grand Army Plaza.
