The Historic Districts Council is New York’s citywide advocate for historic buildings and
neighborhoods. The Six to Celebrate program annually identifies six historic New York City
neighborhoods that merit preservation as priorities for HDC’s advocacy and consultation over
a yearlong period.

The six, chosen from applications submitted by community organizations, are selected on the
basis of the architectural and historic merit of the area, the level of threat to the neighborhood,
the strength and willingness of the local advocates, and the potential for HDC’s preservation
support to be meaningful. HDC works with these neighborhood partners to set and reach preservation
goals through strategic planning, advocacy, outreach, programs and publicity.


The core belief of the Historic Districts Council is that preservation and enhancement of
New York City’s historic resources—its neighborhoods, buildings, parks and public spaces—are
central to the continued success of the city. The Historic Districts Council works to ensure the
preservation of these resources and uphold the New York City Landmarks Law and to further
the preservation ethic. This mission is accomplished through ongoing programs of assistance
to more than 500 community and neighborhood groups and through public-policy initiatives,
publications, educational outreach and sponsorship of community events.
