Historic District

The map shows the existing Stuyvesant Heights Historic district and proposed historic districts in Bedford Stuyvesant.   The bondaries of these districts were drawn by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission following a survey of Bedford Stuyvesant in the early 1970's.

Historic Districts Council

Historic Preservation Tax Credit Programs

If you own an income producing historic building that could use some work or even a lot of work, and you want to maintain its architectural value, then you need to know about the preservation tax credits.

The credits include substantial federal and state tax breaks that help offset the cost of rehabilitating an older building. Equally important, the tax breaks help ensure that New York State's historic buildings are renewed and preserved.

New York State Historic Preservation Office
