ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The New York State Board for Historic Preservation has recommended adding 27 properties and sites to the state and national registers of historic places.

The listings can make properties eligible for public preservation help with grants and tax credits.

There are currently 120,000 on the national list from New York.

The 27 include the Charles Chauncey Dwight House in Auburn. Built in 1835, it was the residence of Judge Dwight, known for deciding a case regarding the constitutionality of the electric chair.

Others are the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company Warehouse in Buffalo, the B & B Carousell on Coney Island, the old Schenectady YMCA building and Fort Ontario Military Reservation in Oswego.
