Started in 2016, SOS New York is an event celebrating the successful preservation projects in New York, calling attention to the projects that need support.

The city officials designated October 23rd as Historic Districts Day. Thus, every year we plan and execute events that call attention to projects that need to be addressed in order to protect the fabric of our city and the quality of life that we all deserve.

The 2017 Celebratory Weekend

The Program:

This year’s Historic District Celebration will focus on Tin Pan Alley.

Oct 21 - Sound Off Conference: Important preservationists will detail the problems facing the city, and concerned citizens will sound off with their concerns and the problems in their areas.

Oct 22 - Plant a Tree: The plan is to plant a tree in neighborhoods where a significant building was lost.

Oct 22 - Save Tin Pan Alley: The event will take place on 28th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue. It will be an afternoon of musicians performing in celebration of the great composers who created modern music in the buildings that now are facing possible destruction.

This program will kick off the “Save Tin Pan Alley” campaign to raise awareness about this area and, hopefully, get the deserved protection and recognition for the important cultural contributions that originated here. Sign the petition to help Save Tin Pan Alley!

Oct 21 & 22 - Historic Tours: We are planning historic tours of the most important areas of the city that are under pressure from new development.

A preservation education model called Hands On History (HOH): Preserving the Past in the Present is an ongoing after-school program at PS 11 in Chelsea. An HOH education unit focused on the history & preservation of Tin Pan Alley will be available for teachers and families at the SOS NY event.
