Harlem Bespoke reported earlier that there are over 1300 signatures on a petition to save the Renny which is a theater located near the landmarked Striver’s Row in Harlem. Earlier this year, the building was sold for $10 mm to a developer who has plans to demolish it and put up a new building which will also be titled the Renny.
According to historian Michael Henry Adams, the developer could save the building. I believe that it’s worth the effort. I think we need to preserve Harlem’s and NYC’s landmarks. New architecture can be at times beautiful but what makes Harlem attractive is the beautifully preserved townhouses and also architecture that you find throughout the neighborhood. What do you think?
