Irish American Community started this petition to The Attorney General of the State of New York

The Irish American Community United to Preserve 991 Fifth Avenue

For more than 120 years, the American Irish Historical Society preserved and celebrated the contributions of the Irish in America, and since 1940 the Society has been located in its majestic headquarters at 991 Fifth Avenue.

This building has for generations been a beacon to newly arrived Irish immigrants as well as native born Americans of Irish descent, celebrating the success of a once maligned minority and their part in the development of America.

This iconic building in a most prominent place on the grandest of avenues is in danger of being sold by a small group, despite all it represents to the Irish in America, in Ireland, and beyond. It is vital that the voice of the Irish American Community be respected and this monument to our people be preserved, its collections be protected and good governance ensured. 

We ask you to sign our petition to stop the sale of the finest Irish Building in America, a vital place for past, present and future generations. To sell it is to demean the work of generations in this Country, as well as deprive future generations of their hard won heritage.

We greatly appreciate the statement of support from the Irish Consulate in New York on preserving 991 Fifth Avenue.   

This petition will be sent to the Attorney General of the State of New York, who has the ultimate authority in these matters.

Thank you.
