This coming Tuesday, February 9th the Landmarks Preservation Commission will put the Shore Theater in Coney Island, and owned by Horace Bullard, on their calendar. According to the Amusing the Zillion blog: this is the first step in the long process and that the public hearing is usually scheduled one to six months after the calendaring.
If you wish to attend Tuesday’s public meeting, don’t be late because the calendaring is expected to take a mere five minutes! The Shore is on the schedule from 9:35-9:40 a.m. Sources say the LPC staff will present a PowerPoint on the building’s history and then there might be a brief discussion among the commissioners. They are likely to vote to calendar the building.
So, there is still the vote to place the structure in the calendar.
Vanishing New York website has a photo essay with history information on the theater.
