On May 15, 2008 at the Preservation League of New York State’s annual meeting and Excellence in Preservation Awards ceremony, PLNYS Trustee Arete Warren presented Anthony C. Wood and Vanessa Norton (accepting on behalf of the Archive Project) with a special citation for Preserving New York Winning the Right to Protect a City’s Landmarks. “This publication makes an important contribution to our understanding of preservation history in New York City… it is easy to imagine this book becoming required reading for preservation degree programs across the country,” said Jay DiLorenzo, President of the Preservation League. “Despite presenting a chronicle of losses, Preserving New York makes the reader proud of the city’s achievements and hopeful for preservation’s future.” The Excellence in Preservation Awards are held annually to honor the statewide preservation community and educate the public about the important contribution that historic preservation projects make to our quality of life throughout New York State. The Archive Project is honored to be recognized among a distinguished role of preservation projects around New York State.
