Public Hearing for the Proposed Washington Avenue Corridor Historic District

The proposed district will make over 280 buildings along and just off of Washington Avenue and Western Avenues eligible for the NYS and Federal Rehabilitation Tax Credits.

HAF has been working on this district for over 10 years and is hopeful that later in the year it will officially be listed on both the New York State and National Register. Note that HAF is not seeking local listing.

We encourage you to support Albany's newest historic district by attending the public hearing of the Historic Resources Commission at 5:30pm on Wednesday, August 7th at 200 Henry Johnson Boulevard in the Second Floor Community Room or by sending a letter of support.

Letters can be emailed to Erin Glennon at and addressed to:

John Myers, Chair

Historic Resources Commission

Planning Department

200 Henry Johnson Boulevard

Albany, NY 12210

This is a huge benefit for Albany and hopefully the beginning of more National Register historic districts to come. We appreciate your support!
