History and creating historical district designation are different. I was the leading person in the 1970s asking to make Van Vorst Park a historical designation and I regret it. Homeowners who lived there for a long time, lost their homes. People come before homes, plain and simple. But that is separate from protecting JC's history. For the record, I pushed for historical designation, along with my husband, aided with the late Joe Duffy and the late J. Owen Grundy. We did this because Colgate was not a good neighbor, they would buy properties for the sole purpose of knocking them down. They just destroyed brownstones for no reason. It is the reason, Paulus Hook has newer housing than other parts of downtown, Colgate destroyed history.
