Sign the Preservation Pledge

As a citizen of the city of New York, believe in the power of preservation to make and keep neighborhoods vibrant.

At HDC, our mission is to ensure the preservation of significant historic neighborhoods, buildings and public spaces in New York City, uphold the integrity of New York City’s Landmarks Law, and further the preservation ethic.  We undertake this mission through direct advocacy, education and support for community groups—but we can’t do it alone.  We need a strong constituency of committed preservationists to make our voices heard.

You can help us by staying vigilant and involved in your community, keeping informed on preservation issues, and, when relevant, taking action.

By signing this pledge, you commit to further the preservation of New York’s historic places through these means and more.
