Pillar of New York Awards
For more than 25 years, the Preservation League of New York State has been honoring corporations and individuals who have taken extraordinary action to protect, preserve and promote New York’s artistic and architectural heritage.
On June 12, the League will celebrate two great preservation partnerships – Janet Ross and Gregory Long for their deep commitment to the NY Botanical Garden, and Peter Pennoyer and Anne Walker for their books on historic architecture. They will be honored with the Pillar of New York Award at the Rainbow Room in New York City.
Gregory Long and Janet Ross have had a long and fruitful relationship working together in support of one of New York’s foremost cultural institutions — the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. Long served as president and CEO of that institution for nearly 30 years. Ross, following on the philanthropy and belief shared with her late husband, has supported the Garden for many years, both as a donor and board member. Her financial support and Long’s vision have helped the Garden become one of the premier botanical gardens in the world.
Anne Walker and Peter Pennoyer have collaborated since 2000 on a series of beautiful and scholarly books spotlighting historic American architecture. Together they have written: The Architecture of Delano & Aldrich, The Architecture of Warren & Wetmore, Building Details, The Architecture of Grosvenor Atterbury, New York Transformed: The Architecture of Cross & Cross, and Harrie T. Lindeberg and the American Country House.
