The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission has just designated a portion of the Grand Concourse as a historic district.

The Bronx Borough President has long been a supporter of this designation, and says he is thrilled that this has finally been achieved.

The Grand Concourse features one of the great repositories of art deco buildings in the United States, and this designation will help to preserve this heritage in Bronx County for generations to come,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.

The boundaries of the designation lie between East 153rd and East 167th Street along the Grand Concourse.
