Friend of Preservation Awards

Begun in 1985, the Friend of Preservation awards are the highest preservation honor given by the Landmark Preservation Commission. Annually, the awards are given to a person, organization, or project for exemplary work in preservation, rehabilitation, restoration or reconstruction done over the past year.
