Senator Diane Savino will be recognized with a “Friend in High Places” award for her support and encouragement of historic preservation on Staten Island, while Architect David Carnivale will receive the “Marty Pearsall Award,” the League’s highest honor, for his many years of advocating for the historic built environment on Staten Island.
