Tin Pan Alley is the cradle of the music industry in the United States. Here, American popular music as we know it was first produced by sheet music publishers, songwriters, and performers including Irving Berlin. This one block of 28th Street offers a glimpse into what has become a worldwide cultural force – pop music – at its specific place of creation. As an enclave of 19th-century structures, its architecture is also largely intact.

The Tin Pan Alley American Popular Music Project commemorates and invigorates a living legacy: the birthplace of American Popular Music and the modern music industry on West 28th Street in New York City. In 2019, Tin Pan Alley became an official New York City Landmark with the designation of 47-55 West 28th Street by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission following years of advocacy by the Tin Pan Alley Project among many others.
