Partners in Preservation: Go vote now!
Scouting NY recently celebrated its fifth birthday!! That's five years and over 650 posts dedicated to exploring New York's mysteries and hidden treasures. Plenty more articles to post coming soon, but this is the the one time of the year when I politely ask, with hat in hand:
If you’re a fan of Scouting NY and have enjoyed my work over the past year, would you consider making a donation to help me make my first movie? If you think I do a good job with my site, all I can say is that I’ve been working a thousand times as hard on my movie, and literally every penny counts. And you even get a special Scouting NY sticker/magnet as a thank-you gift! Click here to donate!
Awesome news: New York City has been selected as the 2012 location for the Partners in Preservation program, which awards a substantial amount of money in grants to help restore historic properties throughout the country.
Forty locations throughout the five boroughs are eligible to receive $3 Million in grants. How does that happen? It’s up to you! Just go to the Partners in Preservation website and vote for who you’d like to see receive the money!
There are a ton of great locations on the list, from Coney Island’s B&B Carousel to the City Island Nautical Museum, from the Helen Hayes Theater to Cleopatra’s Needle.
In addition, Scouting NY will be teaming up with the Partners in Preservation to offer a unique at some of these properties, including portions that are normally off limits to the public. Stay tuned in the coming weeks!!
And be sure to vote!!!
