Save the Landmarks Law: Testimonials from the Trade
One of the arguments being used against landmark protection is economic, that landmark designation stifles job creation. We have been reaching out to actual practitioners who work on historic buildings, both protected and not, and here’s what they’re been saying.
“Thousands of artisans continue to restore and make our city forever beautiful. These jobs are made possible and supported by a strong landmarks law and strong landmarks preservation.” – Sepp Leaf Products
“We are a Union Contracting firm employing over 150 Tradespeople in the field and 20 office personnel. For anyone or any organization to imply that the preservation of historic buildings detracts from jobs in New York couldn’t be further than the truth.” – Nicholson & Galloway
“Thanks greatly to the passing of the Landmarks Law, we have had successful growth and are continually hiring and training individuals in our craft, providing them with skills and career opportunities.” – Essex Works
