In 2010, Landmark West! celebrated its 25th anniversary of advocacy to preserve the character, history and architecture of Manhattan's Upper West Side. As part of this celebration, we conducted a series of video interviews with key leaders and observers of the neighborhood's preservation movement. Their stories offer insights about how the Upper West Side came to be what it is today.
