Anthony C. Wood, author of Preserving New York: Winning the Right to Protect a City’s Landmarks
Interviewed by Judith Stonehill
Meticulously researched and expertly written, Anthony C. Wood’s Preserving New York: Winning the Right to Protect a City’s Landmarks explores the origins of New York City’s nationally acclaimed landmarks law. Join Village Preservation Trustee and past President Judith Stonehill as she and Mr. Wood discuss the decades of struggle that preceded the landmark law and the forces that shaped it. As we examine the buildings that were lost and saved on the way to the law’s ultimate passage in 1965, we will discover how this legislation has helped ensure the preservation of remarkable New York City buildings.
