The good folk of Jersey City are over the heavy-handed abuse of these regulations. And they need to be on the look out - last I heard the City was trying to turn Astor Place into another Historic District.
All too often, historic districting is a blunt weapon of gentrification - a way to get rid of lower-income residents in a neighborhood (who are typically the elderly on fixed incomes or minorities) because they can't afford to comply. Historic districts = Stuff White People Like. This is an interesting article about the controversy over the historic districting attempt in a predominantly African-American neighborhood in L.A. http://www.latimes.com/local/la-me-ad ... -park-20150719-story.html
