Items in New York Heritage are organized into collections, which provide additional context for understanding their significance and meaning.
In the late 1970s, with support from the Genesee Valley Council on the Arts, photographer Daniel Fink (1937-1995) undertook a project of creating a photographic record of notable architectural specimens in Livingston County, NY. More than one hundred domestic, commercial, and religious structures were selected, taking into consideration the excellence of and potential threats to each, as well as their age and condition. Some of the styles represented include Gothic and Gothic Revival, Italianate, Federal, Greek Revival, Mansard, beaux arts, eclectic, cobblestone, and stick style. Fink, who was also chair of SUNY Geneseo’s art department, acknowledged that his study is not exhaustive, but rather a significant start in preserving, at least as images, Livingston County’s historically significant architectural specimens.
