The Living Landmarks gala is a fun and festive nod to New York. It is also the Conservancy’s principal fundraising event and provides vital resources for its programs to preserve and protect the iconic buildings and diverse neighborhoods that define the City.
In its 50-year history, the Landmarks Conservancy has disbursed grants and loans totaling $62 million which has leveraged more than $900 million to save 2,000 sites throughout New York.
