Keeping the Past for the Future
Since 1995, LANDMARK WEST! has brought architecture, neighborhood history, and historic preservation to life through our youth education program, KEEPING THE PAST FOR THE FUTURE.
Free of charge to NYC public schools (and a nominal fee for other schools), using lessons, walking tours, and hands-on design and building projects KPF focuses on teaching about New York City and Upper West Side history, buildings, and architecture. Our programs help build strong connections with the city and its neighborhoods, encourage family and classroom conversations, and foster creativity.

KPF is made possible by the contributions of former Council Members Ben Kallos and Mark Levine, as well as the Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA). It is also made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts (NSYCA) with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. With their support, Landmark West’s KPF program offers a suite of seven 3-part courses aligned with the NYC Core Curriculum in Upper West Side public schools for free every year.
