On November 2, 2016, The New York Landmarks Conservancy hosted its 22nd Living Landmarks Celebration at The Plaza.  This year’s honorees were acclaimed author and film producer Barbara Taylor Bradford, OBE & Robert Bradford, financier and philanthropist Larry Leeds, musician and composer Wynton Marsalis, physician and media executive Mary Lake Polan & Frank Bennack, and Zagat Co-Founders Nina & Tim Zagat. The evening was the Conservancy’s largest and most successful gala, welcoming over 370 guests and raising more than $970,000 for the nonprofit organization. 


The host for the evening was Living Landmark Paul Binder, and music was provided by Living Landmark Peter Duchin and his Orchestra.  Living Landmarks Philip J. Smith and Robert E. Wankel served as Honorary Co-Chairs for the evening.  


Guests who gathered to celebrate this year’s extraordinary honorees included: Christopher Forbes; Geoffrey Bradfield; Bernadette Castro; Gordon Davis; Carole Bailey French and John French III; Barbara and Peter Georgescu; Veronica and Ray Kelly; Janet C. Ross; Barbara and Frank Sciame; Elizabeth Stribling and Guy Robinson; Barbara and Donald Tober; Lindsay Wagner; Sandra and Stan Warshawsky; Sue Ann Weinberg; E. John Rosenwald, Jr.; Daryl and Steven Roth, Robert A.M. Stern; Susan and Robert Summer; Gioietta and Alberto Vitale; and many more.


The New York Landmarks Conservancy honors distinguished New Yorkers from all professions as “Living Landmarks” for their contributions to the City.  The Landmarks Conservancy is dedicated to celebrating, preserving and protecting the iconic buildings and diverse neighborhoods that define this vibrant and extraordinary City and is the only private organization that provides both financial and technical support in this effort.  Since it was founded more than 40 years ago, it has loaned and granted over $40 million to help people save their homes and communities including cultural, religious and social institutions.  These grants and loans have in turn mobilized more than $1 billion in 1,550 renovation projects throughout New York providing much-needed economic stimulus and supporting local jobs.  No other group is engaged in such a hands-on way in sustaining the City’s rich architectural heritage.  The Conservancy’s work generates employment, promotes tourism, and enhances the quality of life for all New Yorkers.
