A tipster informs us that two items of note are on the docket for tomorrow’s Landmarks Preservation Commission public meeting. Both 97 Bowery and the Loew’s Canal Street Theatre at 31 Canal Street are being considered for landmark designations. For the latter property, landmark status could potentially change plans reportedly in the works to revive the former theater as a performance arts center.
