Urgent Preservation Matter!!! Need your help — If you have ever visited the incredible interiors of the Waldorf Hotel in New York City, you know how stunning and irreplaceable the Art Deco lobby, elevators, public spaces and ballrooms truly are. PLEASE read this appeal and urge the NY Landmarks Commission to urgently designate the interiors as a landmark. The Waldorf is a national treasure!

Please share quickly! Direct link to the Conservancy website here.
