Landmark West! makes learning about architecture, neighborhood history and historic preservation come alive! Using our ground-breaking student workbook, My Preservation Journal (click here for sample pages), as well as lessons, walking tours, and workshops – free to NYC public schools – LW! is raising the next generation of preservationists and community advocates. In the 2007-2008 school year, we reached 40 classrooms on the Upper West Side, inspiring over 1000 students (grades 1 to 12) and teachers to become more engaged in their historic surroundings. Demand is high, and the numbers keep growing!
KPF engages students in the built environment with an interdisciplinary approach. Below is a brief summary of our programs.
