Reminder: Testimony still needed for Ambassador Grill hearing on November 22

November 20, 2016

Last month, DOCOMOMO NY/Tri-State reported that the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission unanimously voted to calendar the Ambassador Grill & Lounge and the Lobby of the United Nations Plaza Hotel, now known as One UN New York, for a public hearing on November 22. The Commission will consider designating this rare late Modern interior, designed by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo & Associates. This is the last and best chance for members of the public to offer testimony in support of preservation. DOCOMOMO US has put out a call to help with making a strong showing at the hearing. Individuals can contact DOCOMOMO US director Liz Waytkus at for more information.
