Question of the Day: Glen Cove's Landmarks

What local structures do you think should be protected?

Two local building's The Town of Oyster Bay to Jericho's historic Maine Maid Inn, once used as a stop on the Underground Railroad.

On Monday, the Konica Minolta building on Charles Steet. Reader commented, "This is one of the original 1904 Ladew Leather Works buildings. Let's hope they can preserve the Ladew corporate headquarters building (the old Bobley Publishing building) as a local landmark."

Do you know of any old buildings you believe deserve such designation? Tell us about it in the comments section.

None! Don't hamper progress.

Not gonna happen. We have what is comically known as a Landmarks Commission, which has a titular chairperson only, doesn't meet, and has no agenda, and a governing ordinance that has no teeth. How Glen Cove preserves historic structures: The building that housed Stroppel's Tavern adjacent to the Glen St. RR Station was landmarked just before it was knocked down to build a bank.
