What powers does the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) have to require a building owner to maintain a mechanical clock located in the interior of a building? In Save America’s Clocks, Inc. v. City of New York, 2017 WL 5969265, that issue generated a 3-2 division in the First Department, with the majority holding that the Commission had power to require maintenance of the clock, and to require public access to it. The case appears likely to find its way to the Court of Appeals.
