The New York Landmarks Conservancy and Spatiality Apps have collaborated to bring you an updated, enhanced version of Landmarks: NY.
The Landmarks Conservancy is dedicated to protecting the iconic buildings and diverse neighborhoods that define New York. In celebration of its 40th anniversary in 2013, the organization has partnered with Spatiality Apps to update the app and make it available to its members and others for a special reduced price of $0.99.
The Landmarks: NY app is perfect for tourists, tour guides, architects, historic preservationists, urban planners, realtors, renters & homebuyers, and anyone else curious about NYC's architectural history.
Landmarks: New York lists the official landmarked buildings and sites near you, anywhere in the 5 boros. It tells you when each landmark was designated (some as far back as 48 years! and as recent as May 2013), provides info from the Landmarks Preservation Commission, and provides links to Wikipedia. You can view the locations on a map, post details about the landmark to Twitter or email directly from the app, and take a picture of your favorite landmark -- right from the app.
With more than 1,400 officially landmarked buildings, structures, or interiors throughout the city, almost every neighborhood in New York contains one -- but you'd be surprised by the locations that are landmarked.
Some NYC landmarks are obvious -- such as the Empire State Building. But the list includes other unexpected sites such as the street layout of lower Manhattan, the fence in Bowling Green, local libraries, wood frame houses, cemeteries, churches and synagogues, lampposts, and more.
This app can help you explore the amazing architecture of New York!

What's New in Version 2.5
The app is now available for the iPad!
** Bigger and better display of landmark photos.
** Large screen display of landmark details.
** Individual landmark map shows your location as well as each landmark for easier navigation.
For the iPhone and iPad versions of the app, we've enhanced several features of the layout and design, such as including Instagram as the default photo-sharing option.
We’ve also added the latest landmarks, as of May 2013. And we’ve updated current owner and property use information based on the latest NYC Dept of Finance reports (2013).
No information on the buildings
It would be nice to know which year it was built and who the architect was and a bit of a background on the building. It only shows the year it was designated as a landmark which is not a useful piece of information.
