Last Chance: Save Your Favorite Historic Site

Four NYC sites will score some grant money to offset the cost of their preservation. It's up to you to decide who gets it.

Do you have a soft spot for a certain historic landmark? Today's your last chance to vote to preserve it.

Partners in Preservation, in conjunction with American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is offering up $3 million in grants to four New York City landmarks in need of a little TLC. The sites that score the money is up to you.

Of the 40 landmarks in the running, Brooklyn is home to the reigning top two: As of this writing, Central Library netted 9 percent of votes for new doors at the main entry, while Park Slope's Congregation Beth Elohim received 8 percent for renovation of its roof, parapets, dome and stained glass.

Other top contenders include the New York Botanic Garden and the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum & Gardens, both located in the Bronx.
