Historic designation is token gesture

The New York State Board for Historic Preservation has nominated 19 New York City subway stations for inclusion in the State and National Registers of Historic Places, four of them in Lower Manhattan and the Village.

The June 24 nominations include stations on the 4 and 5 lines at Wall St., City Hall, Bleecker St. and Astor Pl. Eight other Manhattan stations were also nominated: 33rd St. on the 4 and 5 lines, Times Sq., Columbus Circle, 72nd St., 79th St., 110th St., 116th St. and Dyckman St. on the 1 and 9 lines, all among the oldest in the city subway system.

The other station nominations are for Brooklyn and Queens locations. The preservation board nominated a total of 61 places throughout the state last month for inclusion in the historic places registers.
