Yes, hisper, it is amazing that there is not a strong emphasis on the historic district in planning and in revitalization of the unique features and buildings. These buildings will never be built again.

As far as the tax incentives, I do know that NYS, at least for the year I was redoing my home, offered tax credits (of course you have to spend the money first!). The city used to have a delay in increased assessments for those who did restoration, but the taxes went up so it almost didn’t matter to apply for that. Other than that, I was not aware of any specific incentives.

Any other incentives are poorly advertised to the community by the city, though I suppose one could hunt on their own…
