Emergency Maintenance

Since 2011, Historic House Trust enabled completion of more than $85,000 in repairs for 29 distinct emergency preservation maintenance projects.  HHT leverages private contributions in collaboration with the New York City Parks Dept. to address urgent restoration needs, which often are directly related to issues of access to the houses and life-safety concerns.

 

Check out our video of some problems we found at the Lott House (Brooklyn).  We are investigating repairs to the porch.

Check out our video of two porch repairs at the Van Cortlandt House Museum (The Bronx).
