Jazz Greats, Sports Stars, Politicians and More: A Free Program About Addisleigh Park

Jazz Greats, Sports Stars, Politicians and More:

Addisleigh Park Cultural Resource Survey Presentation

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

6:30-8:30pm

Neighborhood Preservation Center, 232 East 11th Street, Manhattan

In 2007 HDC began an effort to document Addisleigh Park, a little-known but culturally significant neighborhood in Southeast Queens. This suburban community was home to numerous major African-Americans figures such as James Brown, Roy Campanella, W.E.B. DuBois, Count Basie, Lena Horne, Jackie Robinson and Ella Fitzgerald (to name just a few). Once completed, we submitted all the material to the LPC, who recently calendared a  historic district, partially in response to our work. Come to this free program to see our research firsthand and learn more about this wonderful neighborhood and its storied past.  

 This event is FREE to the public. Reservations are required, as space is limited. For more information, please contact Kristen Morith at (212) 614-9107 or kmorith@hdc.org.
