The organizers behind the Save Rizzoli movement will host a rally on April 11th.
It will take place at 10 a.m. in front of the Rizzoli Bookstore. With this act, the group hopes to persuade the Landmarks Preservation Commission to landmark the interior of the store.
According to the Save Rizzoli website, “over 31,000 buildings have been landmarked in New York City. However, landmark designation for interiors is rare. Since the Landmarks Law was signed in 1965, there have only been 115 interior landmark designations.” Thus far, more than 16,000 people have signed the Change.org petition to esignate 31 West 57th Street as an individual and interior landmark.
