HPF People – Celebrating the Historic Properties Fund’s 40th Anniversary
Welcome to HPF People, a video series celebrating the 40th anniversary of our loan program, the Historic Properties Fund. We will introduce you throughout the year to dedicated New Yorkers we’ve met through our work.
This month we are featuring Sarah Taylor and Jorge Sosa who love New York and are proud of their Harlem neighborhood. We visited them last summer as we helped them complete a restoration of their brownstone facade, decorative elements, and lower entranceway.
The Conservancy’s revolving loan program, the Historic Properties Fund, has loaned more than $31.6 million over the past four decades to homeowners, co-ops, non-profits, and religious institutions throughout the boroughs.
