Protecting Birds in New York City

Thank You to Our Friends and Supporters Who Attended This Year's Fall Roost at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center


At this year's Roost, we proudly honored the creative team that dramatically transformed the Jacob K. Javits Center. Once among the deadliest buildings for birds in New York City, the Center is now a remarkable example of bird-friendly design integrated with sustainable architecture. Hazardous reflective glass has been replaced with new high-performance patterned glass and stainless steel panels to vastly reduce bird strikes.

NYC Audubon would also like to thank Kathleen Guzman of Heritage Auctions for leading our first-ever Live Auction. The auction included many fabulous items, but the crowd was especially thrilled with the opportunity to have two kestrel nesting boxes named after them on the Javits Center’s green roof!

Proceeds from the Fall Roost provide essential support for New York City Audubon's advocacy, scientific research, environmental education, and hands-on habitat restoration to protect wild birds and their habitat in the five boroughs.
