Our Story and Mission

The New York Preservation Archive Project is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to documenting, preserving, celebrating, and educating about the history of historic preservation in New York City.

Recognizing the instructive and inspirational importance of this history to the continued health, success and growth of preservation in our City, the Archive Project hopes to bring these stories to light through public programs, oral histories, and providing public access to information. The Archive Project is devoted to celebrating neglected narratives of New York historic preservation using the archives that hold these stories.
