Borough Committees

Join our Borough Committees!

These groups serve as networks to exchange information about local issues and spread the word about community campaigns. They are a forum for discussion of both specific and broad issues confronting New Yorkers who care about preserving their community’s physical character and are seeking to raise awareness about their issues with the hopes of resolving their concerns. All interested members of the public are welcome.

Bring your community preservation concerns and issues!

Join the Google Group, or email drobayo[at] where you’ll get updates on neighborhood preservation concerns, upcoming gatherings, and more. These groups will be moderated for content and civility.

We know there’s history around every corner, and we’re here to share it with you through walking tours and events built on a potent combination of rigorous research and fabulous storytelling flair! At Archive on Parade, we believe there is a history of everything, everything is history, and history should be accessible to everyone.”

Upper Manhattan Preservation Committee – Matthew Spady & Manhattan’s CB12

Tuesday, February 9, 2021

Mattew Spady and other members of Manhattan’s Community Board 12 met to discuss: “Securing landmark status for a neighborhood or individual building requires hours of work ranging from researching and writing a Request for Evaluation, to collaborating with neighbors and community leaders, to garnering support from elected officials, neighboring institutions, and building owners. Most often, years can pass from an initial idea for a landmark until the final designation, if the Landmarks Preservation Commission agrees that the suggested building or neighborhood is suitable for landmarking. So what compels people to start this process—and keeps them going in the face of setbacks, obstacles, and downright refusal?”
