In case you weren’t aware of it, Mayor Bloomberg paid Forest Hills a visit yesterday at a town hall meeting, sponsored by the Forest Hills Civic Association.

Michael Perlman, chairman of the Rego-Forest Preservation Council, writes about the meeting on his blog:

In response to preservationists’ public statements, the Mayor said he will have Chairman Robert Tierney of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission give the speakers a phone call. Mayor Bloomberg would not say whether he supported its preservation and reuse, but promised he will start a dialogue with USTA President Lucy Garvin.

Here is a link to Mr. Perlman’s more detailed account of the meeting:

If you are just joining this story, a quick update: The members of The West Side Tennis Club, the group which owns the famous Stadium, are set to vote on Sept. 23rd whether to sell Forest Hill’s most well-known landmark to local developer Cord Meyer, which wants to destroy it to make way for condos.
