This week saw the New York City landmarks preservation commission designate ten new buildings, bringing the total this year to 27, and clearing a 50 year backlog. Amongst the sites recognised are the Bergdorf Goodman department store, churches in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Harlem and an early farmhouse on Staten Island.

The Guardian has all the beautiful photos.
