Alan Chartock ... In Conversation with Anthony Wood

Albany, NY – For almost three decades, Anthony C. Wood has been intimately involved in preserving New York City.

A preservation activist, historian, writer, teacher and grant maker, he is currently Executive Director of the Ittleson Foundation. An Adjunct Assistant Professor of Historic Preservation at Columbia University, Mr. Wood is the founder and chair of the New York Preservation Archive Project.


Preserving New York: Winning the Right to Protect A City's Landmarks is the story of the people and places, the buildings and battles, and the policies and politics that, after decades of tragic losses, led New York City to create a legal mechanism to protect the city's cherished landmarks. The book is the previously untold story of the origins of New York City's nationally acclaimed landmarks law.
