Proceeds from our Living Landmarks Celebration will help the City get back on its feet. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve disbursed $4.6 million in grants and low-interest loans which have leveraged $54 million in renovating and restoring homes, businesses, cultural, religious, and social institutions throughout New York … providing local jobs for architects, carpenters, contractors, engineers, masons, roofers and so on.
