On Sunday, October 22, 2017, preservationists and historians rallied to protect the cultural treasure known as Tin Pan Alley between 28th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue ~ with musical performances and a tour.
It was a day to learn about the rich history of the historic one block, known as Tin Pan Alley, and the efforts to preserve its heritage, along with many of its 19th-century structures still in tact.
Finally, on December 9, 2019, the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission announced that there will be a vote on proposed designation of five historic buildings associated to Tin Pan Alley to be held on Tuesday, December 10th.
The five building are: 47 West 28th Street; 49 West 28th Street; 51 West 28th Street; 53 West 28th Street, and 55 West 28th Street. These buildings were home to the most significant concentration of sheet music publishers in New York City.
