Preservation Long Island: Everything Worth Celebrating

SPLIA’s blog is inspired by one of Long Island’s first preservation advocates, the late Barbara Van Liew (1911-2005), whose extraordinary work was rooted in a hearty belief that: “Long Island is the Mesopotamia of this country whence springs everything worth celebrating and protecting in American architecture and culture”. From objects to landscapes, archives to fine art, there’s a lot to celebrate on Long Island and we’ll share it here with you.
