The New York Landmarks Conservancy held its 30th Annual Chairman’s Award luncheon at The Metropolitan Club in Manhattan on June 7, 2018. The event recognizes organizations and individuals who have demonstrated outstanding dedication to protecting New York’s rich architectural heritage. This year’s awards went to Andrew Kimball of Industry City, Rev. Dr. William Lupfer of Trinity Church Wall Street, and Richard J. Moylan of Green-Wood. All three clearly demonstrate that historic buildings can, and do, serve modern needs. It was a highly successful event, raising nearly $160,000 with more than 200 guests.

Andrew Kimball, CEO of Industry City, was recognized for his role in the transformation of this 1895 facility located on 30 acres on the Sunset Park waterfront in Brooklyn.  It is the largest adaptive reuse of an industrial campus in the country.  Industry City is Brooklyn’s newest watering hole for foodies and opportunity enthusiasts. It houses tech and manufacturing firms, restaurants, retailers, and businesses. This innovative community is cross-pollinating individuals who thrive on creativity and idea sharing.  The beautifully crafted project is filled with a 40,000 square–foot Food Hall, ample courtyard space, an athletic center, parking, bike racks, and WiredScore Platinum internet connection. Through the collaboration of ideas and services, Industry City is challenging the idea of a traditional neighborhood.

Prior to this position, Mr. Kimball was National Director of Innovation Economy Initiatives at Jamestown, a national developer focused on the revitalization of underutilized urban assets. Before that, Kimball was President and CEO of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation, overseeing the transformation of the former 1801 naval ship-building facility into a national model for the creation of innovative jobs and sustainability. He was also Director of Operations for NYC2012, the privately-funded bid to bring the 2012 Olympic Games to New York City, and a Vice President of the New York Public Library.

The Rev. Dr. William Lupfer, Rector of Trinity Church Wall Street, received a Chairman’s Award for his continued stewardship of one of the City’s most important religious sites. Trinity Church and its affiliated St. Paul’s Chapel, both individual New York City landmarks, still anchor Lower Manhattan.

St. Paul’s will forever remain in the hearts of New Yorkers for the solace and comfort it provided first responders in the aftermath of 9/11.  Though the Chapel wasn’t damaged in the attack, it still needed work.  Built in 1764, it weathered two and a half centuries of wear and tear.  Trinity meticulously restored the Chapel and its churchyard a few years ago.  It received the Landmarks Conservancy’s Lucy G. Moses Award for Historic Preservation for that effort.

Rev. Lupfer is now embarking on a major renovation of Trinity’s historic interior. The work will bring back the original color scheme, restore its stained glass windows, and upgrade infrastructure systems, among other improvements. The historic building will also be made ADA accessible.  As with previous efforts, the work will be done to the highest preservation standards. During the two year project, the nave will be closed but services will take place in its All Saints Chapel.

Trinity Church remains an active parish with a rich history. Today, more than 1,200 members are committed to meeting the changing needs of the interconnected world.

Richard J. Moylan was honored for his visionary leadership of historic Green-Wood on the occasion of their 180th anniversary.  He is President of Green-Wood and the Green-Wood Historic Fund and has been associated with Green-Wood for more than 45 years, beginning his career as a teen-aged landscaper. He rose through the ranks, graduated with degrees from Hunter College and New York Law School, and has been president of Green-Wood since 1986 where he oversees every aspect of its operations. During his tenure, Green-Wood has opened its gates to more than 250,000 visitors annually.

            Located in Brooklyn, Green-Wood is one of the first rural cemeteries constructed in the United States.  A sprawling landscape of nearly 500 acres, Green-Wood has been recognized as a National Historic Landmark.  Once a site of the Battle of Brooklyn in 1776, Green-Wood is a historic site of the American Revolution. Thousands of visitors journey to the site each year to pay homage to its 560,000 permanent residents. Some of those buried include Civil War veterans, European settlers, the influential artist Jean-Michel Basquait, and composer Leonard Bernstein. Green-Wood captures the beauty of landscape, art, and architecture that define New York City’s history.

In 1999, the Green-Wood Historic Fund was created.  This 501(c) 3 not-for-profit membership organization works to preserve the Cemetery’s sculptures, monuments, and buildings of historical, cultural, and architectural significance.  Mr. Moylan is also a board member of the National Sculpture Society, a recipient of the Fine Arts Federation’s highest honor, and the 2016 Place Maker award of the Foundation for Landscape Studies.

Fred Bland of Beyer Blinder Belle, Stephen J. Meringoff of Himmel + Meringoff, and Otis Pearsall of Arnold & Porter served as Honorary Co-Chairs.  Frank J. Sciame, Jr. of Sciame was the Leadership Committee Chair.

The Leadership Committee was comprised of Jeff Ackerman, Michael Braner, Gale Brewer, Joan K. Davidson, Michael De Chiara, Barbara and Richard A. Debs, Victoria Dengel, Kenneth Drucker, Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson, Alfred Gallichio, Elizabeth Goldstein, Green-Wood, Industry City, Jamestown, Stephen S. Lash, Arthur L. Loeb, Malcom MacKay, John B. Madden, Joseph Mizzi, Mount Hope Cemetery Association, Jeff Murphy, Sheila Parekh-Blum, Virginia R. Parker, Jonathan Plotkin, George Ranalli, Barrie Ringelheim, Barbara and John Robinson, Marla Sabo, Frances G. Scaife, Max Schneider, The Shubert Organization, Larry Silverstein, Ernest M. von Simson, Elizabeth Stribling, Donald G. Tober, Sandra F. Warshawsky, Carl Weisbrod, Sam White, and Lloyd P. Zuckerberg.

The New York Landmarks Conservancy has led the effort to preserve and protect New York City’s architectural legacy for 45 years.  Since its founding, the Conservancy has loaned and granted more than $50 million, which has leveraged more than $1 billion in 1,550 restoration projects throughout New York, revitalizing communities, providing economic stimulus, and supporting local jobs.  The Conservancy has also offered countless hours of pro bono technical advice to building owners, both nonprofit organizations and individuals.  Its work has saved thousands buildings across the City and State, protecting New York’s distinctive architectural heritage for residents and visitors alike today, and for future generations.  For more information, please visit
