Help us preserve preservation’s past!

We are a not-for-profit organization and we depend on support from you to continue our work. Please consider a contribution to safeguard the story of New York City’s historic preservation movement. With your support, the Archive Project can capture more preservation stories through oral histories. We can plan more public programs highlighting and documenting preservation’s history. We can focus energy on building our online educational resources. And we can continue to remind New Yorkers that our beloved landmarks and historic districts survive today not by accident but because generations of concerned preservationists fought to secure their future.
