Exhibition Celebrates 50 Years of the Pioneering New York City Landmarks Law

Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks, on view at the Museum of the City of New York through January 3, 2016, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the New York City Landmarks Law. Enacted in 1965, the law has ensured the preservation of the character of many historic neighborhoods and buildings throughout the city. The Conrad B. Duberstein U.S. Bankruptcy Courthouse and Post Office in downtown Brooklyn is among the buildings featured in the exhibition. KHA designed the adaptive reuse of this Romanesque Revival-style building from the late 19th-century, restoring such elements as the skylit atrium and intricate decorative painting while modernizing systems and adding rooftop space hidden from street view.
