A Brief Upstate Preservation Update

I just wanted to take a moment to post some preservation goings-on around our fair Upstate!

Firstly, there is a conference taking place at the FDR Presidential Library in Hyde Park, NY this Saturday, sponsored by the Preservation League of New York State, Hudson River Heritage, The New York State Council on the Arts and the National Trust for Historic Preservation called "Preservation Under Pressure" talking about preservation issues that could apply anywhere upstate, with seminars on scenic roadways and the possibility of community and design-friendly chain stores. It seems like it will be valuable for anyone in a community looking to learn more. And it's not to late to sign up! The registration fee is a mere $20 for a day of preservation fun, info is available on the PLNYS website. And I'll be there. Good times!

Secondly, there've been a number of new blogs on the scene in recent months, but I'd like to single out for honorable mention Excelsior! Ever Upstate, a blog by Stefanie, a life-long York Stater and a historic preservation student at Cornell, who is also very friendly. Excelsior! will appear on the sidebar with other additions this month as we continue our one-year anniversary updates.
