On November 5, 2007, NYPAP and The Museum of the City of New York were joined by over 200 friends and members of co-sponsoring organizations to celebrate the launch of Preserving New York: Winning the Right to Protect a City’s Landmarks (Routledge 2007) by NYPAP Founder and Chair Anthony C. Wood. The kickoff event at MCNY included a short program with special guests Museum Director Susan Henshaw Jones, Roberta Brandes Gratz, Adele Chatfield-Taylor, Joan K. Davidson, and Anthony Wood. A reception and author book-signing followed the program.

Preserving New York was also featured at a number of book talks, panel discussions, and slideshows held by NYPAP and co-sponsoring organizations in the last part of 2007. In January the book received a positive review in the Wall Street Journal. Copies of Preserving New York are available for purchase through NYPAP.
