West-Park Landmarked!
Preservation Rally Draws Spirited Crowd

A Landmark At Last!
As of 3:08 this afternoon, West-Park Presbyterian Church is the Upper West Side's newest official Landmark!  

In a series of votes today at City Council, the Subcommittee on Landmarks, the Land Use Committee and the full 51-member Council upheld the unanimous decision of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission to preserve one of New York's most remarkable religious structures.

Please join us in sending congratulations and deepest thanks to Council Member Gale Brewer for her tireless leadership.  After a 20-year community effort, ensuring a positive outcome in today's vote was no easy task.  But the *real* work of preserving and revitalizing this landmark is still ahead of us.

Today's victory begins a new chapter in the life of West-Park.  The community is mobilized, energized and ready to get to work!  We look forward to having you by our side and will keep you closely posted on next steps.  The ultimate goal is not only to preserve West-Park for future generations, but to restore it to vibrant use.  With your help, we can do it! 
In the meantime, cheers to all!

Preservation Rally Draws Spirited Crowd to City Hall

Rain or shine, New York City wants landmarks!

Dozens of landmark and neighborhood preservation advocates from all of the city's five boroughs gathered on the steps of City Hall to rally for preservation.


Historic buildings and neighborhoods are among New York's most valuable cultural and economic assets.  Landmarks must be a priority!  Past Preservation Lobby Days have resulted in greater Landmarks Preservation Commission funding and demonstrated the breadth of the preservation community. 

LANDMARK WEST! thanks all of the organizations and individuals who participated in this year's rally.  Your presence helped send the message loud and clear ...

Preservation is for the people and benefits all New Yorkers!
