Please review the attached letter to Governor Spitzer dated January 25th, regarding the preservation and
landmarking of Admiral’s Row in the old Brooklyn NavyYard.  Enclosures listed at the bottom of the letter
can be viewed on the website, under the subject heading "Admiral’s Row".  Of special note on the last sentence, second page of  – (Letter fromUSCOE (United States Corps of Engineers) to National Advisory on Historic Preservation – ref: Admirals’
Row, Brooklyn Navy Yard, Brooklyn (Kings County) New
York Project – overview, history and current status.
(3 pages)) — "…Although the MOA was completed, the EIS proposes several alternative mitigations the NYC and the BNYDC may consider since the current plans call for the removal of the structures…"  We must discard the Admiral’s Row Memorandum of Agreement which allows the demolition of these undesignated landmarks and preserve our heritage and allow due process to occur.
