Last day to vote for your favorite NYC 'historic places'

Today is the last day to vote in the Partners in Preservation contest in which 40 New York landmarks are competing to win grants (awarded based in part on the number of online votes each organization can gather).

Per the news release about all this: "The program will infuse $3 million in grants to preserve the city’s historic buildings, icons and landmarks."

And there are two East Village historic places in the running...

• DMAC - Duo Multicultural Arts Center on East Fourth Street
Project: Restoration of 6 murals, decorative tin ceiling

• St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery
Project: Restoration of the portico

Supporters can vote for the place of their choosing at the Partners in Preservation website.

I'd have to give it to St. Marks. That place is , literally, falling apart.
