The Preservation League of Staten Island (PLSI) works for the conservation and continued vitality of Staten Island's historic resources. The League was founded in 1977 by a group of community-minded citizens concerned about Staten Island's vanishing historic environment. We sponsor programs about the recognition, care and restoration of historic properties. We have given neighborhood and historic house tours and we confer annual awards for outstanding preservation work. Landmark designation for significant sites is a priority.

Preservation Action Alert No 1: 66 SWAN STREET
This wonderful structure was built in 1902 to house the horses used for the newly consolidated City street sweeping operations on Staten Island.
66 Swan Street, currently used by the NYC Dept of Sanitation for equipement storage, represents one of the last stables of its kind on Staten Island. Very worthy of preservation!
