Preservation Industries: Behind-the-Scenes Tours of Artisan Studios

Preservation Industries: Friday, October 14, 2011, 3pm

Join HDC for a special look at some of the local craftspeople who help preserve New York City’s historic buildings. We will visit these nodes of production, rarely seen by the general public, that create structural features and ornaments stylizing for New York’s historic architecture.

Among the stops for this tour include stained glass artisans, Gil Studio, Heights Woodworking, and music venue, The Bell House, located in a converted printing press building.

Fee: $40, $30 Friends of HDC, Seniors and Students
This tour will take place in Gowanus, Brooklyn (one of HDC’s Six to Celebrate). Instructions and directions will be provided upon registration. The tour is expected to last approximately three hours. Space is limited and advance registration is required.
