Press release:

The Preservation League of New York is seeking nominations from local and regional preservation organizations, advocacy groups, municipalities and others for its 2018-19 list of New York State's most endangered places – Seven to Save.

Since 1999, the Preservation League has highlighted New York's threatened historic sites through its Seven to Save list. The program provides enhanced services from the League to bolster visibility and build support for preservation.

"Through our partnership with concerned groups and individuals, the threats to dozens of at-risk buildings, landscapes, downtowns, and neighborhoods have been reduced and in many cases eliminated by a Seven to Save designation and subsequent actions," said Preservation League President Jay DiLorenzo. "The League is looking forward to providing strategic attention, extra effort, and new tools to secure the future of New York State's endangered resources for generations to come."

The League is looking for places that could benefit from the additional attention that Seven to Save designation brings. 

Program goals are to:

    • Spotlight important threatened historic buildings, structures, landscapes and communities;

    • Generate enthusiasm for the protection and reuse of threatened sites;

    • Identify options for the viable use of threatened sites;

    • Focus public attention on key statewide preservation issues;

    • Demonstrate the economic and community-building benefits of historic preservation;

    • Provide guidance, strategies and tools to alleviate threats to at-risk sites.

For more information about nominating sites and to request an application, call Preservation League Vice President Erin Tobin at (518) 462-5658, ext. 12, or via email at etobin@preservenys.org.

The deadline for nomination is Oct. 16.

The Preservation League of New York State invests in people and projects that champion the essential role of preservation in community revitalization, sustainable economic growth, and the protection of historic buildings and landscapes.

The Preservation League of New York State is seeking nominations for its 2017 Excellence in Historic Preservation Awards. These awards recognize significant achievements in historic preservation throughout the state. The nominations must be submitted digitally by Feb. 10. The awards will be presented in May.

"Preservation and reuse of our historic buildings is fundamental to the economic revitalization of our cities, towns, and villages," said Preservation League President Jay DiLorenzo. "The restoration of our historic neighborhoods, Main streets, and underutilized buildings continues to create jobs, provide housing, promote tourism, stimulate private investment, and conserve energy, resources, and open space. Our annual Awards program allows us to highlight projects that offer new examples of best practices in historic preservation."

The League especially encourages nominations that may provide case studies or models incorporating energy efficiency, adaptive reuse, or New York's Rehabilitation Tax Credit program.
