Local Zoning Board Says Old Coat Factory Not a Landmark

Apparently people all over the country are upset about some pro forma decision made by a local community board in my town not to give landmark status to an old coat factory and to instead permit a religious organization to build a Y type community center. You wouldn’t think this would have a big effect outside of the immediate neighborhood, but I guess Manhattan really is the center of the universe or something.
