Linden Street, in Brooklyn, NY wonderful Bushwick neighborhood, has now been designated as a historic district by the City's Landmark Preservation Commission.

Linden Street has a wonderful collection of distinctive row houses designed by Brooklyn architects, which represents a successful integration of late 19th century architectural styles and stands out as a worthy historic district. 

Deputy Mayor for Economic and workforce development, Maria Torres Springer said “I appreciate the work of the Landmarks Preservation Commission to celebrate our built heritage in all neighborhoods across the city and to designate Linden Street in Bushwick a historic district in recognition of it's exceptional architectural and cultural significance”. 

According to LPC Chair Sarah Carroll “The Linden Street historic district is the first historic district designated in Bushwick and advances the LPC equity goals”. “The district contains some of the most strikingly artistic row houses in Brooklyn and is truly meritorious for it's significant architectural high integrity and a strong sense of place”. “Today's action is very important as the agency continues to designate landmarks and historic districts in areas that are not as well represented by designations”. 

Bushwick's rich history is often overlooked according to Council member Jennifer Gutierrez “The designation of Linden Street as a New York City historic district is a triumph for the Bushwick community”. 

Bushwick is one of the 6 original Brooklyn towns chartered in 1661 during the Dutch Colonial period. 

The Linden Street Historic District consists of  a group of 32 brick and brownstone row houses developed by Samuel M. Meeker. Built between 1885 and 1901 the row houses were designed in the neo Grec style by Edward F. Gaylor, the Queen Anne style byFrank Keith Irving, the Renaissance Revival style by Benjamin Finksieper and an artful combination of the Romanesque Revival styles by Charles E. Palmer. 

Today, this magnificent block continues to reflect  it's strong harmonious, historic character and the diversity of Bushwick.
