Mission Statement

Calvert Vaux Preservation Alliance is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit advocacy organization dedicated to preserving the architectural and landscape design legacy of Calvert Vaux, senior co-designer of Manhattan's Central Park and Prospect Park in Brooklyn, along with residences throughout the Hudson Valley, notably in Newburgh and Kingston, among other works. CVPA is also the friends' group for the Hoyt House ("The Point") in Staatsburg, NY, by agreement with New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation . The Hoyt House ("The Point") is probably Vaux's most important application of the picturesque concept in its integration of landscape and architectural design. CVPA also remains deeply concerned for the future of the endangered Newburgh City Club (Culbert House), designed by Vaux and A.J. Downing 1851-52.
