Taking Questions on N.Y. City's Built Heritage

There's a great feature in the New York Times called "Taking Questions". From time to time they profile someone and invite readers to submit questions in the comments section. Later that week a selection of those questions will be answered by the profilee.

This week's
Taking Questions features Simeon Bankoff, executive director of New York City's Historic Districts Council and the topic is community-based heritage preservation in New York City.

I follow the City Room section of The Times - it's a great read for all things urban. it's also a reminder that the challenges that cities face - whether New York or Winnipeg - are very similar. Heritage issues are no different. You can see this in the questions posed to Mr. Bankoff. I look forward to his answers later this week.
