This initiative has altered streetscapes in neighborhoods throughout the city by creating public spaces under the management of non-profit partners. The Plaza Program is presented as a pre-conference program with content related to the open space issues that will be addressed at the 18th Annual Preservation Conference on March 2-4, 2012.
The Neighborhood Partners Program is sponsored, in part, by Deutsche Bank, Lily Auchincloss Foundation, Assembly Members Jonathan L. Bing, Deborah J. Glick, Richard N. Gottfried and Daniel J. O’Donnell, and State Senators Thomas K. Duane, Liz Krueger & Diane J. Savino.
