The Preservation League of New York State has released its annual list of the seven “most threatened” historical sites.

The site of the first U.S. settlement of the Shaker Christian sect and a crumbling Erie Canal aqueduct are among some of New York's most endangered places, according to a statewide preservation group.  The Preservation League of New York State on Tuesday released its "Seven to Save" designees for 2018-2019.

The Historic Albany Foundation took ownership of 48 Hudson Avenue in 2013. Now, efforts to restore Albany's oldest building and someday transform it into a tourist attraction are ramping up — especially after the building next door was demolished after becoming unsafe. WAMC's Capital Region Bureau Chief Dave Lucas recently sat down with Foundation Executive Director Susan Herlands Holland.
