Preserving the Fabric of Our Neighborhoods
Tuesday, May 26 at 6:30pm
Mayor Bill de Blasio has chosen to make affordable housing one of his administration’s chief policy initiatives. “As we invest in more affordable housing,” he said, “we will also work with communities to preserve the fabric of our neighborhoods and invest in things that great neighborhoods need.” Join a group of leading experts as they explore the intersections between historic preservation and affordable housing, portraying how preservation encourages sustainable development and helps to stabilize communities facing financial distress. This program accompanies the City Museum’s exhibition Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks, on view from April 21 through September 13, 2015.
