New York's endangered historic places

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has released its annual list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places, which it uses to spotlight sites that are threatened by neglect, lack of funding, inappropriate development or cuts to preservation grants. In 25 years, the nonprofit organization has listed 234 sites. New York has made the list 18 times. -- THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
