Love NYC Landmarks

New York City is the greatest city for many reasons, including its strength, resiliency and creativity. Evidence of these traits can be found in all of our NYC Landmarks. On March 30, 2020, LPC launched an initiative to celebrate New York City, providing engaging online content about the historic buildings and neighborhoods that make New York a vibrant, beautiful and resilient city. Through our #LoveNYCLandmarks initiative, LPC will share articles, photos, story maps, neighborhood tours, trivia/quizzes, and games and activities for kids and adults in an effort to engage New Yorkers in a joyful discourse about the City’s history and culture, foster civic pride and strengthen our connections to the places we love.

Check out our posts on social media and share your love for NYC Landmarks! You can follow us on Twitter  and like us on Facebook and LinkedIn.
