2008 New York State Historic Preservation Award

The state historic preservation awards honor excellence in the protection and rejuvenation of New York’s historic and cultural resources.  By recognizing exemplary preservation partnerships and achievements and expressing gratitude on behalf of all New Yorkers, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation believes that these awards will inspire others to safeguard the state’s heritage.  The range of awards this year reflects the deep commitment and strong partnerships across the state that have made preservation an important tool for economic development.

Through activities such as building rehabilitation, neighborhood reinvestment, and sensitive new construction, projects such as those receiving awards today can increase property value, stabilize business and residential districts, create more jobs, return vacant or underutilized properties to productive use, and improve the quality of community life.  We celebrate not only the rich heritage of New York State’s built resources represented by the projects honored today but also wealth of talent and dedication demonstrated by those who have brought these successful projects to fruition.
