We’ve wanted to bring Inside Downtown to the Washington Square neighborhood for some time, and have been patiently waiting as more places have been rehabbed in the area. Now is the time, with new residences, work spaces and retail that have opened within the past two years. Washington Square Park will be the centerpiece of the Tour, with Tour Headquarters at the newly named Legacy Tower (former Bausch + Lomb headquarters), private lofts on view at the Capron Lofts and the Artists’ Lofts at Woodbury Place, and more!

Applications available for Preservation Grant Fund


Applications are now available for our next round of funding. Launched in September, 2012, The Landmark Society’s Preservation Grant Fund program offers funds for preliminary design and planning studies to help make positive improvements to at-risk buildings. The program was initially funded through a bequest from Elizabeth (Libby) Stewart. Libby was a longtime Landmark Society staff member who was dedicated to the revitalization of neighborhoods and historic structures.

The Preservation Grant Fund provides initial “start-up” funding to assist in saving historic resources. The grant will not pay for any “bricks and mortar” work. Applications are due October 21st. Potential applicants must contact Caitlin Meives to discuss their project and obtain an application. >>Visit our website to learn more.
