About Us

At the front lines of advocacy, the rooftops of sacred spaces, and the stoops of brownstones, the Conservancy works in many directions on behalf of New York’s architectural heritage. The Conservancy’s programs demonstrate that hands-on help for building owners is the key to successful preservation. By providing technical advice, financial aid, and education, the Conservancy contributes to economic revitalization of the City’s neighborhoods and aesthetic rehabilitation of its much-loved older buildings.

Astor Row now features many restored Victorian porches. From the smallest details to the tallest buildings, the Conservancy preserves New York's unique architectural heritage.

The Conservancy is nationally and internationally recognized as a vocal and forward-thinking leader in the preservation movement. Its work ensures that the landmarks of New York—homes and schools, businesses and cultural institutions, theaters and houses of worship—will serve its citizens for generations to come.

Each month we invite New Yorkers to be tourists in their own town, with our monthly video series where we focus on a historic site or Conservancy project that helps us realize what a remarkable City this is. So go out and discover a New York Landmark today and send us your photos.

The Conservancy’s achievements are the result of our dedicated Board & Staff.

The generosity of our Supporters makes our work possible.
