Proposed NYC landmarks include iconic Pepsi-Cola sign, a Staten Island lighthouse and more

Last year, the city sparked fear among preservationists when it announced it was dropping plans to consider extending landmark designation to a backlog of 94 buildings and two historic districts.

But the Landmarks Preservation Commission relented and has proposed a public review period of the sites beginning Thursday with hearings from October to November of this year. The goal is for the LPC to make a decision about each of the items in early 2016.

Here’s a look at seven of the proposed landmarks. The full list can be found at nyc.gov as well as dates for each of the public reviews.
