HDC Monday Morning Coffee Talk-Disponzio

Joseph Disponzio will discuss how NYC Department of Parks and Recreation is approaching the preservation of the cultural and historic landscape resources of New York City. His talk will center on the writing and use of cultural landscape reports to help guide the restoration of historic landscapes. Reports on Conference House Park in Staten Island, Poe Park in the Bronx, and Weeping Beech Park in Queens analyze layers of history within our parks, including early natural history and Robert Moses’ modern influence. He will also discuss how DPR is meeting the challenge of implementing the Mayor’s PlaNYC Million Tree initiative, while preserving the open-space of our parks.
