Landmarks Law: The Backbone of Preservation

An often-hidden aspect of the preservation movement is its direct impact on people. Preservation attracts professional expertise, employs skilled craftspeople and encourages citizen activism.  Join us to find out what professionals working in a range of fields have to say about the Landmarks Law and learn how it provides jobs, economic growth and supports standards in the building arts that are not always seen in new construction with Daniel Karatzas, Jeff Greene and David Richter.

These discussions will be held at the Neighborhood Preservation Center located at 232 East 11th Street New York, NY 10003Admission is free but an RSVP is required.  This schedule is subject to change.  To RSVP, please email Ashley Shedd at

The 19th Annual Preservation Conference and related programming is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional support is provided by City Councilmembers Margaret Chin, Inez Dickens, Daniel Garodnick, Vincent Gentile, Stephen Levin and Rosie Mendez. The conference is also co-sponsored by HDC’s Neighborhood Partners.
