Partners in Preservation, our annual community-based initiative with American Express, is coming to New York City -- and it’s bigger than ever! We tripled the grant money and almost doubled the amount of historic sites in order to celebrate the diverse urban fabric of the Big Apple. You can help decide which of the 40 pre-selected historic places will be awarded grants by heading to www.PartnersinPreservation.com and voting once a day until May 21. You can also vote on Facebook or your mobile device.

Through this partnership, American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation seek to increase the public’s awareness of the importance of historic preservation locally and to inspire long-term support of historic resources within their communities. Since 2006, $6.5 million has been awarded to nearly 100 preservation projects in San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans, Boston, Seattle and Saint Paul/Minneapolis.
Check out which sites are competing, see photos, maps, and read about some of the historic sites you may not even know existed at www.PartnersinPreservation.com.
Voting starts 11:01AM ET 4/26/12, ends 11:59PM ET 5/21/12. Must be at least 13 to vote. Limit one (1) vote per person/email address per calendar day. See Voting Terms, which govern, for complete details.
