Three sites in Brooklyn and one in Westchester County are being considered for designation as historic landmarks.

The New York State Board for Historic Preservation has recommended adding the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the Jewish Center of Coney Island, and the Kismet Temple in Bedford-Stuyvesant to the State and National Registers of Historic Places because of their historical significance.

The Board is also nominating 17 other sites statewide including the Village of Irvington's Historic District.

Listing on the Registers can benefit properties by making them eligible for historic rehabilitation matching funds and tax credits.
