Historic Preservation Month: Places That Matter

Historic preservation has gone grass-roots: People all over the country are uploading photos of buildings near and dear to their hearts (ranging from a church in Goldsboro, North Carolina to the multipurpose Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma) onto a Flickr pool launched by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Over 700 entries have been compiled so far, but it doesn't look like New York is anywhere in the mix. Where in the city would you place a small white "This Place Matters" sign?

The Orchard House in Concord, MA matters to a museum educator dressed as Louisa May Alcott. The "Little Women" author and her family lived in the building in the mid 1800s.
