Historic Preservation

Great Neck Plaza

In 2000 Long Island Traditions began an ongoing partnership with the Village of Great Neck Plaza to document, interpret and preserve its historic sites and cultural resources. Working with architectural historians and planners, Long Island Traditions submitted an in-depth research report to the Village in January 2001 that identified over 53 historic sites and structures dating from the late 1700s to the 1960s. The Village contains excellent examples of late 19th century commercial and residential buildings, pre-war 20th century apartment-hotels and auto showrooms, post-war garden apartments and two religious sites.

Visit the Village’s web site and learn about the Historic Preservation Commission’s efforts to preserve and educate residents on this historic community. Go to http://www.greatneckplaza.net/historic/index.php
