The transformation of Proctors in Schenectady and the revitalization of downtown Canajoharie are among eight projects to be honored by the Preservation League of New York State with its annual Excellence in Historic Preservation Award.
The statewide program recognizes individuals and organizations for their commitment to the preservation of the state’s architectural heritage.
“Excellence in Preservation Awards are our principal means of honoring the preservation community and educating the public about the important contribution that historic preservation projects make to our quality of life throughout New York State,” said Jay DiLorenzo, president of the Preservation League. “Each year, we are impressed by the number and variety of laudable projects, and this year was no exception. We are delighted to give Proctors the statewide recognition it deserves.”
Other award winners are: Webb Lofts in Buffalo; the MacNaughton House stabilization in Newcomb, Essex County; the U.S. Post Office & Courthouse in Brooklyn's Cadman Plaza; the Eldridge Street Synagogue on the Lower East Side of Manhattan; the Hotel Kirkland in Kingston; and the Model Development Block in New Rochelle.
The award will be presented at the preservation league’s annual meeting May 15th at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City.
