New York City names Melrose Parkside as its 155th historic district

The Landmarks Preservation Commission decided that a row of 20th century buildings in Flatbush can now be called the Melrose Parkside Historic District.
It is the 155th historic district in New York City.
The commission voted to recognize the row of single- and two-family duplex houses for their historic and architectural value.
Officials say that the 38 buildings have maintained their historic features besides a few renovations such as doors, windows and roofing material.
