The Oldest Building in Each of the Top 100 Cities in the United States

The stories of the buildings of the United States and their residents are indivisible from the history of the nation itself. The character of the oldest building of each city evokes the hopes, dreams and conflicts experienced by our ancestors. Many of them came to the country as immigrants in search of a safe and prosperous new homeland. Others experienced the colonization of the United States as a fight for survival. In every case, these buildings represent the daily struggle and monumental leg...

It was unclear what would happen to New Yorkers who already had submitted applications (and renewals). That's now clear. Those applications have reportedly been flushed. ...
