Landmarks Conservancy President, Peg Breen #37 on City & State’s list of Manhattan’s 50 Most Powerful Private-Sector Leaders.
From the heads of financial firms to health care centers, from the directors of nonprofits to business improvement districts, from educators to activists, here are the private-sector leaders who are already planning how to bring Manhattan back – and better than ever.
“Peg Breen is a landmark superhero, sprinting across the city to convince policymakers to preserve underappreciated structures of historic significance and disburse grants to neglected buildings. This past year, Breen sought to keep Harlem’s Lenox Terrace from a rezoning that would alter the site, paid $60,000 for renovations at the Weeksville Heritage Center, gave a $10,000 grant to the oldest surviving synagogue in Queens, and presided over a contest to redesign the paths on the Brooklyn Bridge.” – City & State New York
“This is a tribute to the work of the entire Conservancy team. We’re all working to preserve the City we love.” – Peg Breen
