Preservation & Environment
Museum at Eldridge Street
Located inside of a 19th-century New York City temple, the Jewish museum is a treasured historical landmark.
The New York Landmarks Conservancy was established in 1973 to protect the diverse landmarks and communities that anchor New York City's storied history. Since its founding, the conservancy has been on the frontlines of preserving historic buildings, advocating for preservation-friendly development, and revitalizing local communities.
A nationally regarded expert in architectural preservation, the New York Landmarks Conservancy has provided thousands of owners of historic residential, religious, public, and commercial buildings with objective evaluations and practical suggestions for preservation and restoration. The organization also conducts research reports, maintenance plans, and feasibility plans to assist owners of historic buildings. Further, the conservancy operates five funding programs that have distributed more than $53 million in loans and grants to facilitate preservation activities: the New York City Historic Properties Fund, Sacred Sites, Emergency Preservation Grants, City Ventures Fund, and the Queens Historic Properties Fund.
