    The Bard act of 1956 was passed to empower structures and cities within the New York State and pass laws enabling the preservation of landmarks. This act provides protection, enhancement, perpetuation, which may include appropriate and reasonable control of the use of neighboring property within the public or private view. The Landmarks preservation commission officially recognized that a building has cultural of aesthetic value which exposes the importance of its architecture as part of New York s historical and architectural heritage. This impacts urban development in positive ways. Structures that are important to those living in NY would be protected. For example, the GCT terminal was in danger of being demolished due to the accidents. The law saved this from happening and now GCT is a place of businesses and tourists attractions.
