This NJ group has been trying to save historic properties for 25 years. Is it working?

David Listokin, a professor who specializes in historic preservation at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University, said there’s been increased interest in restoring these types of properties, which reflects a change of attitude.

“It is challenging. Older properties have their needs,” he told NJ Advance Media. “You have people sometimes….chasing at a public body having oversight over their properties, but there’s clearly been a sea change in terms of growing interest in historic properties and a desire to preserve them.”
