Nyack's John Green Preservation Coalition Raises Money Via Indiegogo

NYACK, N.Y. -- Saving Nyack's oldest remaining Dutch sandstone house has sent the home's owners, the John Green Preservation Coalition, to the Internet to start a fundraising campaign on Generosity/IndieGoGo.

The coalition, a nonprofit organization, received the house through a donation by OCWEN Financial in September. Since then, it has been working to stabilize the building and getting it ready for winter.

So far, the roof structure has been supported and trapped; the exterior walls have been shored; the coalition's stabilization plan has been accepted by the village of Nyack; and a permit has issued to begin the work on the restoration of the house.

To finish the job, the coalition needs money to rent boom lifts and other equipment; to pay for architectural design and engineering services; to buy the specialized mortar appropriate for use with Dutch sandstone structures; and for carpenters and masons and other specialized craftsmen.

The coalition is reaching out to the community for support with this new campaign, hoping to complete it in time for the opening of the new Tappan Zee Bridge in order to use part of the house as a welcome center for the village of Nyack.

Donations can be made through the Generosity website.
