Redirect?[edit]

I'm thinking that the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission should probably be a redirect to a larger article about NYC Landmarks Law, its history, purpose, etc. Chuck 18:45, 28 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Moved[edit]

Moved the following from the page, and instead changed the location listed in the text of the page (which was listed as Madison Square) Jxan3000 03:51, 7 January 2007 (UTC):

Error[edit]

There is an error in this article. Madison Square Garden was located near Madison Square until 1924 when the great Stanford White building, where he was murdered, was demolished to build the current New York Life tower. At the time, the Garden moved to 50th Street and Eighth Avenue where it remained until replaced by the current version, but retained its famous name. The 50th Street venue was famous for boxing matches and political rallies. I am old enough to remember it. The 50th Street 8th Avenue subway stop featured a tile sign saying "Madison Square Garden" until its demolition.

March 2008[edit]

I just blew up the article! I started off saying 'oh I'll just add a source' about its role and of course it exploded. I'm not sure I'm happy with the layout and I know the history/decisions still need significant expansion (and are so-tagged). Sources, for anyone who might have time to tackle this befor I get back to it:

Collaboration[edit]

I've put the article on my to-do list, but I think this one needs serious collaboration to make sure it's comprehensive. Thoughts? TRAVELLINGCARIMy storyTell me yours 03:37, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected links on New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission which have been added to the blacklist, either globally or locally. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed or are highly inappropriate for Wikipedia. The addition will be logged at one of these locations: local or global If you believe the specific link should be exempt from the blacklist, you may request that it is white-listed. Alternatively, you may request that the link is removed from or altered on the blacklist locally or globally. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. Please do not remove the tag until the issue is resolved. You may set the invisible parameter to "true" whilst requests to white-list are being processed. Should you require any help with this process, please ask at the help desk.

"Prominent court decisions" section[edit]

I suggest that the text about the court decisions about the Fulton Fish Market and Little Syria, Manhattan should be condensed into 1 paragraph each. The existing sections should probably be moved to the respective article, so as not to give undue weight to these sections. Epic Genius (talk) 00:39, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

Re my reverted edit of June 7th[edit]

Yesterday I spotted certain items in the lede that were not represented in the main article, and transferred them to an appropriate place in the body, along with 4 cites which, of course, had never belonged in the lede in the first place. As these items did not seem lede-worthy, I did not include them in the new lede.

Beyond My Ken promptly reverted my changes, commenting ‘Add it to the body, don’t remove it from the lede.’ What does he mean by this? Is it some policy from the wiki guidelines? The lede is meant to summarise the article, which the old one didn’t.

In reverting my changes, he has removed the additions to the main article, which he had just told me to leave in. So once again, the lede fails to summarise the article.

The place to debate other people’s edits is on the Talk Page, and I would have welcomed his views, if first presented here. If nobody objects in the next few weeks, I will re-revert. Valetude (talk) 11:07, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

No, please read WP:BRD, your Bold edit was Reverted, then we Discuss. Discussion does not have to take place before the Bold edit is Reverted. Please learn what you're talking about.
In general, the lede is a summary of the body of the article, which is why it does not generally require sources, but it can also contain facts that are not in the body, if they are sourced, which is the case here. If you want those facts in the body, the thing to do is to add them to the body without removing them from the lede, then there will be no problem. BMK (talk) 14:38, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
Is it not permitted to exercise judgment as whether or not an item is lede-worthy, and delete it if not? Valetude (talk) 17:54, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
No, it's permitted, and it's also permitted for other editors to disagree with your judgement and revert your edit. BMK (talk) 18:50, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
