In July, the Department of Transportation installed new street signs throughout the Prospect Heights Historic District. Forty-nine existing signs within the district were replaced. The new street signs will more clearly indicate the boundaries of the Historic District to residents and visitors. Historic markers, each with a map and description of the district, will be installed later this year.
The new Historic District signage project was coordinated by the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council with sponsorship from Councilmember Letitia James, the NYC Landmarks Preservation Foundation, and the Prospect Place Block Association. Councilmember James, Community Board 8 Chair Nizjoni Granville, PHNDC Chair Danae Oratowski, members of PHNDC and CB8, and local residents posed for a photo commemorating the project.
