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!!
