Lower Manhattan Emergency Preservation Fund

The Society is pleased to announce its partnership with the World Monuments Fund, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Preservation League of New York State, and the New York Landmarks Conservancy to create an emergency preservation fund for lower Manhattan’s historic structures. In all, there are 67 designated landmarks near the World Trade Center site and even more which are listed or may be eligible for listing on the National Register. The partnership is establishing guidelines and will soon invite grant applications for documentation, assessment, planning and conservation projects that alleviate the impact of the disaster. The Fund for the City of New York has generously agreed to hold the monies at no charge and your contributions, made out to The Fund for the City of New York, are welcome through the Society. For more information, please contact Vicki Weiner, the Municipal Art Society’s Kress Fellow for Historic Preservation, at vweiner@mas.org or 212/935-3960.
