On April 27, 2011, BirdMaster, the leader in humane bird control for Historic Preservation, has received another two prestigious awards from The New York Landmarks Conservancy.
This year, the Conservancy’s 21st Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award recognized BirdMaster Bird Control Systems for the outstanding preservation efforts made at the Church of St. Francis Xavier and the New York Public Library.
“Inside the beautifully-restored sanctuary of honoree, Church of St. Francis Xavier, nearly 500 people gathered to take part in the Conservancy’s 21st Lucy G. Moses Preservation Awards on April 27. The coveted awards, nicknamed the ‘Preservation Oscars,’ laud outstanding preservation efforts by individuals and projects. They are named for Lucy Goldschmidt Moses, a dedicated New Yorker whose generosity benefited the City for more than 50 years.
‘The awards are a celebration of outstanding restoration projects throughout the City as well as some extraordinary individuals,’ said Peg Breen, president of the Conservancy. ‘The time and care that went into completing these projects demonstrates New Yorkers’ commitment to preserving the entire range of the City’s historic architecture.’
This year’s vast range of project award recipients—from the New York Public Library to a modest building in the Bronx; historic religious properties from many eras; architecture that is sometimes grand and opulent—tell the story of New York. The honorees included: 614 Courtlandt Street, Belasco Theatre, Church of St. Francis Xavier, Knox Building, Liberty Tower, New York Public Library, Our Lady of the Rosary Mission, Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, PS 90 Condominium, Queen of Greene, St. Stephen’s United Methodist Church, Surrogate’s Court-Hall of Records, and Urban Assembly New York Harbor School, Governors Island. Owners, managers, architects and restorers responsible for 12 outstanding preservation projects completed in 2010 accepted the awards”
