New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (1962-1999): Paradigm for Changing Attitudes Towards Historic Preservation

Marjorie Pearson received the 1999 Kress Mid-career Grant for a study of preservation commissions, focusing on the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, which handles the greatest number of ongoing regulations and most diverse array of Landmarks in the country. This important history will be made widely available to the preservation community, who can learn from New York’s example.
