Bay Ridge, Brooklyn
Elegant rowhouses, Victorian-era mansions and pre-war apartment buildings combine with parks, vibrant commercial streets and impressive institutional buildings to make Bay Ridge a quintessential New York City neighborhood. For more than 30 years, the Bay Ridge Conservancy has been working to preserve and enhance the built environment of this architecturally and ethnically diverse area.
Rockaway Beachside Bungalows, Queens
Morningside Heights, Manhattan
Port Morris Gantries, The Bronx
In the South Bronx neighborhood of Port Morris, a pair of ferry gantries deteriorating in an empty lot may seem an eyesore to some, but the Friends of Brook Park sees them as the centerpiece to an engaging public space. Taking inspiration from other New York City waterside parks, this new park will combine recreation, education, and preservation of New York’s history for residents and visitors alike.
Van Cortlandt Village, The Bronx
Victorian Flatbush, Brooklyn
Located in the heart of Brooklyn, Victorian Flatbush is known for
being the largest concentration of Victorian-era homes in the country.
The area presently has five New York City Historic Districts, but
the blocks in between them remain undesignated and unprotected despite
architecture of the same vintage and style. Six local groups representing
Beverly Square East, Beverly Square West, Caton Park, Ditmas Park
West, South Midwood and West Midwood have joined together with the
Flatbush Development Corporation to “complete the quilt”
of city designation of their neighborhoods.
Six to Celebrate is generously supported by The New York Community Trust.
Additional support for the Six to Celebrate Tours is provided by New York City Councilmembers Inez Dickens, Daniel Garodnick, Stephen Levin and Rosie Mendez.
