NAC Building: 160 Convent Ave

Activists, advocates, experts converse on the issues of affordable housing, rezoning, City of Yes, neighborhood character and identity, government programs and initiatives at the intersection of historic preservation. Breakfast and a light lunch will be provided. 

How do communities within New York City navigate significant government initiatives directly affecting them? From designating historic districts to altering zoning regulations and executing major infrastructure projects, each neighborhood in the city has experienced both advantageous and adverse impacts resulting from government-led endeavors.

The 2024 Preservation Conference, jointly organized with the West Harlem Community Preservation Organization, explores how communities have effectively collaborated with government bodies to safeguard their historical assets. Conversely, it will also scrutinize instances where communities have endured detrimental effects due to such undertakings over several decades.

AIA continuing education credit available for each panel provided by Brooklyn AIA.

This event is being hosted by the West Harlem Community Preservation Organization & the Historic Districts Council.
