This is a list of New York State Historic Sites (SHS). It includes 40 state-designated historic sites and parks managed by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.[1][2] Twenty-two sites also are National Historic Landmarks (NHLs) of the United States and are described further in List of National Historic Landmarks in New York.[3] The 18 SHS that are not NHLs may be of national importance and be NHL-eligible but, as state-owned and -administered sites, may have less need for additional protection; or may be of state, but not national, importance.[citation needed]
