HOME OF GORDON PARKS, LEGENDARY PHOTOGRAPHER, COULD BE DESIGNATED LOCAL HISTORIC LANDMARK

On Wednesday evening the Greenburgh Town Board will refer the proposed designation of 15 Adams place as a local historic landmark to the Planning Board for its advice. This is the house that legendary photographer, filmmaker, writer and composer Gordon Parks had lived in. Mr. Parks wrote a memoir in 2005 -describing the bungalow in the suburbs -its large room with a skylight and huge windows. Mr. Parks spent some of his most formative and creative years in the Adams Place house, which creatively has left its mark on american history. Special thanks to the Historic and Landmarks Preservation Board for their recommendation.
