The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is the largest municipal preservation agency in the nation. It is responsible for protecting New York City’s architecturally, historically, and culturally significant buildings and sites by granting them landmark or historic district status, and regulating them after designation.
New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, & Historic Preservation (OPRHP) oversees the New York’s State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) whose mission is to help communities identify, evaluate, preserve, and revitalize their historic, archeological, and cultural resources. SHPO works with governments, the public, and educational and not-for-profit organizations to raise historic preservation awareness.  Download the NYS Homeowner Tax Credit info sheet.
The National Parks Service (NPS) is a federal agency that manages all national parks, many national monuments, and other conservation and historical property designations. NPS preserves and protects these places through research, and restoration, planning and management, educational outreach, and oversees disbursement of the Historic Preservation Fund.
The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation’s historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America’s historic and archeological resources.
The New York Landmarks Conservancy is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, revitalizing, and reusing New York’s architecturally significant buildings. It provides technical assistance, project management services, grants, and loans, to owners of historic properties in New York State.
The Historic Districts Council is the only advocate for designated historic districts and for neighborhoods meriting preservation in all five boroughs. HDC organizes neighborhood residents in efforts to gain protection for their communities and assists property owners through the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s processes and monitors preserved properties.
In partnership with East Harlem Preservation, in 2015 our friends at the  Historic Districts Council have created an incredible preservation resource through the Six To Celebrate program. Every year, six neighborhoods are chosen from applications submitted by community organizations.
Selection is based on the architectural and historic merit of the area, the level of threat, the strength and willingness of local advocates, and potential for HDC’s preservation support to be meaningful. The purpose of the program is to provide strategic resources to neighborhood groups at a critical moment to reach their preservation goals. The six selected groups receive HDC’s hands-on help on all aspects of their efforts over the course of the year and continued support in the years to come. The program helps community activists learn to use tools such as documentation, research, zoning, landmarking, publicity, and public outreach to advance local preservation campaigns.
