Threatened Properties

The Eight That Can’t Wait

PACNY’s annual threatened properties list, the Eight That Can’t Wait, is a primary program of the association’s preservation advocacy mission. The purpose of the list is to raise public awareness about historic resources in the five-county Central New York region that are threatened by issues such as neglect, redevelopment, natural disasters, and inappropriate alterations. Threatened property lists are a common tool among preservation advocacy organizations and include the National Trust’s “Eleven Most Endangered” list at the national level, and the Preservation League of New York State’s “Seven to Save” at the state level. In addition to raising public awareness through traditional and social media outlets, PACNY  tracks progress on the endangered properties and offers technical assistance to property owners and community members to help achieve a positive outcome.
The annual listing after 2018 includes roll-overs from the prior year for historic properties that remain under threat and still warrant preservation assistance. Removal of a property from the list does not necessary mean the threat has been resolved. Check the comment boxes under each listing for updates.
