Recommendations made for historic sites in NY
ALBANY An old railway signal factory in Buffalo and a Hudson Valley post office are among 21 places around New York state being nominated for historic designation.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state Board for Historic Preservation has recommended 21 sites to the State and National Registers of Historic Places. The sites include the former Taylor Signal Company factory in Buffalo and the Bangall Post Office in Dutchess County.
State officials say adding the sites to the state and national registers will help ensure their long-term preservation. It can make the sites eligible for grants and tax credits.
When recommendations are approved by the state historic preservation officer, the sites are listed on the New York State Register of Historic Places. Then they're nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.
