Organized in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of New York City’s landmark law, the City Museum’s upcoming exhibition Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks will launch with “Redefining Preservation for the 21st Century”, a multi-disciplinary symposium exploring the challenges and the opportunities of the preservation movement today and in the future. What role will preservation play in keeping New York a dynamic global city?  How will preservation law and practice continue to adapt over time? A distinguished group of speakers will examine how preservation shapes and strengthens our neighborhoods and our city as a whole.
