What do YOU believe is worth preserving?

If you believe that buildings designed by famous architects aren't the only ones worth preserving, if you believe that regular people who lived in regular buildings deserve to have their stories told, too, then vote for the Tenement Museum to win a major grant, from Partners in Preservation, to preserve the historic tenement apartments at 97 Orchard Street.

You can vote once a day through May 21 at either the Partners in Preservation website, http://partnersinpreservation.org/, or on their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/PartnersinPreservation. The grant is awarded based entirely on this popular vote, and the Tenement Museum needs a last minute push to get to the top by the end of this week!

Remember, the Tenement Museum preserves and tells the stories of people just like our own immigrant ancestors - their stories need to be told, and their homes need to be preserved. Vote today and every day to make it happen!
