UPDATE: Marx Brothers’ Childhood Home Won’t Be City Landmark

July 22, 2010

Yesterday, we reported that the Community Board 8 had voted in favor of making the Marx Brothers’ Upper East Side childhood home a New York landmark, sending the decision along to the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Unfortunately, the LPC announced that they wrote a letter against making it into a landmark, and now fans and supporters are speaking out, specifically against NYC Council Member Dan Garodnick.
