The 90-page manual, commissioned by MARP and the Historic Wallabout Association, is a valuable resource for owners of historic properties in the Wallabout neighborhood. The manual provides guidance on how to maintain and rehab a historic property, and also discusses available tax credit and other financial incentive programs available to those properties located in the recently designated historic districts in Wallabout.
In addition to the manual being available at tomorrow's community event, representatives from the State Historic Preservation Office and the New York Landmarks Conservancy will also be available to discuss incentive programs that can assist property owners with rehabbing their historic homes. A complimentary copy of the manual will be available to all Wallabout property owners, and will be available to purchase for $10 to those outside of Wallabout.
The manual was researched and written by BKSK Architects LLP and was funded, in part, by a grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Elizabeth and Robert Jeffe Preservation Fund. Additional support was provided by a grant from the Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation.
