The City of New Rochelle’s illustrious history and historical preservation efforts are highlighted on a new website launched this week by the City of New Rochelle Historical and Landmarks Review Board.
The site, http://hlrb.newrochelleny.com, offers a firsthand view of the framework from which the Historical and Landmarks Review Board operates, with relevant information for owners of historic homes and properties. The site also showcases those properties receiving historic designation on a national, regional and local level; a detailed recounting of the City’s history; and valuable links for further reference and information.
The website was funded by a grant received in 2010 from New York State through the Certified Local Government Program. The Historical and Landmarks Review Board’s technical consultant, Jean Friedman, gathered the content and worked with the HLRB Board and City Historian to create a robust subsite through Civic Plus, the City’s website provider.
“The site contains a wealth of information for those who are looking for information on New Rochelle’s extensive historically-significant resources, as well as how best to preserve them,” noted Mel Beacher, Chairman of the HLRB. “This site should be interesting and helpful to both long-time New Rochelleans and newcomers alike.”
