Alex Herrera

Director, Preservation Services

Alex Herrera has had forty-years of experience in architecture and historic preservation in NYC including twenty years at the Conservancy. He advises hundreds of people a year on how best to conserve, restore, and repair their landmark buildings. Working closely with professional colleagues from a variety of related fields, he has taken part in the rescue and restoration of many notable landmarks on behalf of the New York Landmarks Conservancy. He has a Degree in Architecture from the University of Virginia and a Master’s Degree in Historic Preservation from Columbia University.

Favorite Landmark: Grand Central Terminal. The Terminal is an amazing landmark that seamlessly blends architecture and engineering. It also played a pivotal role in the legal history of Historic Preservation in the United States. The long-anticipated restoration of Grand Central Terminal in the late 1990s was one of the most interesting and rewarding projects that I recall.
