Considering that the LIC yard has been there since the 19th century, the LIRR should steal a march on everybody and get it landmarked. After all, the historical (and, IINM, timetable) beginning of the LIRR is Long island City. The signals were numbered in terms of mileage from LIC, not Penn Station.
Why not? The entire NYC subway system is a historical landmark. Doing so for the LIC yard would REALLY piss in the yuppies' coffee. :)
