Living Landmarks Gala

Living Landmarks Honoree List

Each year, The New York Landmarks Conservancy recognizes New Yorkers who have made outstanding contributions to the City and honors them as Living Landmarks at our fall gala. Honorees have ranged from entertainers to entrepreneurs. Civic leaders are honored with the special *Lew Rudin Award for Outstanding Public Service, named after the late New York real estate magnate and philanthropist.
