New York has been at the forefront of highlighting its rich cultural, economic, political and social history. More than 15 years ago, the not-for-profit Historic Landmarks Preservation Center, under the leadership of its chair, Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel, created this Cultural Medallion program. It was initiated to create a sense of pride in history and of place among New Yorkers and visitors, to document significant individuals, and notable occurrences related to the City's cultural, economic, political, and social history. Cultural Medallions are placed on buildings associated with distinguished New Yorkers involved in the arts, sciences, the law, business, education, sports and politics. The elegant oval terra-cotta, black and white plaques recognize that history is about more than bricks and mortar, but what people accomplished under the city's roofs that truly matters. "Not only do they help bring history alive," Diamonstein-Spielvogel says of the medallions, "they're meant to remind people of how New York became as rich and vital, as energetic and dynamic as it is. They're also meant to inspire you in your own life. This program is honoring the past and, we are, I hope, motivating people in the future." More »

For more than two decades, the Tenement Museum has been fulfilling its distinctive mission among leading American cultural institutions: to make tangible the profound role immigration plays in shaping American identity; to forge powerful emotional connections between Museum visitors and immigrants past and present; to evoke unforgettably the history of immigration on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, America’s iconic immigrant neighborhood. The heart of the Museum is a historic tenement at 97 Orchard Street, home to an estimated 7,000 people from over 20 nations between 1863 and 1935. Visitors view restored apartments and former retail spaces in the tenement building, explore the surrounding neighborhood's history and culture, and powerfully experience how immigrants built new lives and weathered hard times. One of the fastest growing cultural institutions in New York City, the Museum will welcome more than 200,000 visitors in 2013, including more than 40,000 K-12 students. Many of those students, living the immigrant experience right now, come away from the Museum with an inspiriting sense that their families, too, are making history. The building at 97 Orchard Street is a National Historic Landmark and an affiliated site of both the National Park Service and National Trust for Historic Preservation. More »

LESPI is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving the historic areas of Manhattan's East Village / Lower East Side. LESPI's strategy includes documenting and mapping the EV/LES historic streetscapes, and rallying community residents, city officials and the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission to effect historic district landmark designation. The East Village / Lower East Side has tremendous architectural, historic and cultural importance to both the city and the country. During the 17th century it was the location of Peter Stuyvesant's farm, in the 19th century the East River waterfront was the center for NYC's shipping and trade, and from the 19th century through the present the area has served as a national point of arrival and community for immigrants from all over the world. The area has also been a prime source for avant garde art, literature, music, and progressive politics. Although LESPI was instrumental in the recent landmarking of the East Village / Lower East Side and East 10th Street Historic Districts, we must act quickly to landmark the area’s remaining intact streetscapes, or most of the neighborhood's historic architecture will disappear - a huge loss for us and for future generations.
