The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in Manhattan

The Partners in Preservation program is encouraging readers to vote through May 21, 2012, to support several key historic maritime places in and around New York.
Maritime sites under consideration for funding include:

-    The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in Manhattan
-    City Island Nautical Museum in the Bronx
-    Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center in Brooklyn
-    Gateway National Recreation Center-C47 Skytrain WWII Transport in Brooklyn and
-    Tug Pegasus & Waterfront Museum Barge in Brooklyn


In total there are 40 sites listed on the website competing for $3m in grants through Partners in Preservation, a collaboration between American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, to spotlight the importance of historic preservation. The public is encouraged to vote daily for their favorite of the 40 historic sites at www.PartnersinPreservation.com or www.Facebook.com/PartnersinPreservation
The top four vote-getters, to be announced May 22, will receive the largest grants for their preservation projects.  An advisory committee of community and preservation leaders will allocate the remainder of the $3 million in grants to the 36 other sites.
Partners in Preservation is a program in which American Express, in partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, awards preservation grants to historic places across the country. American Express has committed more than $15 million to Partners in Preservation, helping historic sites in six cities to date, which includes preservation projects in San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans, Boston, Seattle and Saint Paul/Minneapolis and has engaged more than a million people.
