New York Landmarks Conservancy on half a century of preservation advocacy
The New York Landmarks Conservancy this year is celebrating its 50th anniversary of preserving New York City’s historic buildings. To commemorate this milestone, the nonprofit this month began its “50 at 50” online photography exhibition, featuring 50 buildings throughout the city that show a range of the organization’s restoration projects. From the former U.S. custom house in Bowling Green, to the Alice Austin house on Staten Island, to the Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn – the exhibition showcases a cross-section of the buildings restored by the Conservancy along with the stories they hold.
New York Nonprofit Media spoke to Conservancy President Peg Breen, who reflected on the organization’s work over half a century as well as its advocacy protecting the city’s distinct landscape near the Penn Station Redevelopment.

Riley's Way Foundation has opened their annual Call For Kindness, which calls on young changemakers (13-22 years old) nationwide to submit their ideas for projects rooted in kindness, empathy, and inclusivity. Now in its fifth year, the Call For Kindness offers changemakers the chance to participate in a dynamic Leadership Development Fellowship and win up to $3,000 to fund a project that strengthens their local, national, or global communities. Young people are invited to submit a new or existing idea, managing everything from prevailing social justice issues to pressing community-based needs. This year, a separate category will consider additional projects focused on environmental justice, as the climate crisis and other ecological problems require critical attention.
