SAG HARBOR’S NEWEST NEW YORK STATE HISTORIC LANDMARK

 

nycoba | NOMA is excited to share that the chapter took part in creating history! Back in the fall of 2018 nycoba NOMA assisted the historically African American neighborhoods of Sag Harbor Hills, Azurest and Ninevah (SANS) to achieve New York State Historic Landmark status.

 

It was a great opportunity to learn about a neighborhood started by working class African Americans that transformed into an affluent community.

 

The group of about 25 volunteers participated in an architectural survey of 308 homes in the three associations that comprise Black Sag Harbor. It was a weekend long initiative to survey in the areas of Sag Harbor Hills, Ninevah and Azurest - collectively known as SANS.
