Summary The destruction of McKim Mead & White's monumental Penn Station in the mid-1960s was the catalyst for the adoption of the Landmarks Law, which established the parameters for protecting and preserving buildings and places that represent New York City's cultural, social, economic, political, and architectural history. Today there are more than 31,000 landmark properties in New York City. The total number of protected sites also includes 1,338 individual landmark buildings, 117 interior landmarks and 10 scenic landmarks. How these sites were chosen, how landmarking has impacted the fabric of the city, and what the future holds are the subject of Preserving Place.
