2 20 plus apartments went up on Erie in the last two years, how is that historically correct?
Dude, that's not how the historic district works. They don't care about infill construction, some of the true believers actually don't want it to look old fashioned because then the museumgoers might be confused about which are the "real" historic homes. Those are the ones subject to the historic board.
Right (mostly). It's not that they don't care about infill, but it is considered "wrong" to have make-believe old buildings. What is important is respecting the scale of the neighborhood.
For what it's worth, all of the rules are spelled out by the Secretary of the Interior. (you can find it online.) DAN doesn't make the rules, the federal government does.
