On Thursday, November 17 at the 2016 Annual Craftsmanship and Civic Leadership Awards Gala, we gathered in the historic General Society Library to celebrate the significant contributions of two New Yorkers to our City, both who have played a leadership role in historic preservation and are vital advocates for New York City and State Landmarks. The evening had a particular resonance, as on that very night, exactly 231 years ago, on November 17, 1785, twenty-two mechanics, artisans and tradesmen gathered together to form The General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen.   Our 2016 Craftsmanship Award recipient was Peter Pennoyer, FAIA, Principal, Peter Pennoyer Architects; and our Civic Leadership Award recipient was Peg Breen, President, The New York Landmarks Conservancy. It was a wonderful evening in celebration of our honorees and their accomplishments. We are deeply grateful to all those listed below who supported the Annual Craftsmanship and Civic Leadership Awards Gala which benefitting The General Society of Mechanics & Tradesmen and its Mechanics Institute. Your contributions will help secure the future of our Mechanics Institute so that it can continue its long-standing tradition of helping the men and women of the building and construction industry to make a better life for themselves, their families as well as the community.
