ALBANY, N.Y. — New York state is recommending 22 sites for the national and state registers of historic places.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo released the list of buildings, structures and historic sites earlier this week. The recommendations must be formally approved by state and federal historic preservation officers before they can be added to the registers.

This year’s nominees reflect hundreds of years of history and can be found throughout the state.

The list includes a 19th century schoolhouse on Long Island, a colonial-era cemetery in Orange County, and a century-old fire tower in the Adirondacks.
