Greening NYC’s Historic Buildings

Green Rowhouse Manual

October 19, 2012

The Greening NYC’s Historic Buildings manual is an integral part of the Municipal Art Society of New York’s (MAS) campaign to demonstrate that any historic building restoration can and should include energy efficiency measures. This manual was developed as part of MAS’s Preservation and Climate Change Campaign, which promotes the environmental benefits of retaining New York City’s older buildings and improving their efficiency to fight climate change. This manual is intended to help owners of historic rowhouses in New York City and elsewhere make energy efficiency gains, while following best historic preservation practices.
