A slide lecture by Anthony C. Wood
“Preserving New York: Winning the Right to Protect a City’s Landmarks” *
Monday, December 3, 6:00 pm
In the landmarked Christ & St. Stephen’s Church
122 West 69th Street (Columbus & Amsterdam)
Reception will follow in a Central Park West Apartment
Join author and preservationist Anthony C. Wood for his first slide lecture based on his new book, Preserving New York: Winning the Right to Protect a City’s Landmarks. In addition to debunking the myth that the landmarks law grew out of the rubble of Pennsylvania Station, he will discuss the role of neighborhoods in the ultimately successful effort to create a formal mechanism (the Landmarks Law, passed in 1965) to protect NYC’s landmarks.
Q & A and book signing will follow.
* Preserving New York (Routledge Press, 2007) tells the fascinating forgotten story of how New Yorkers struggled for decades to successfully forge a process to protect their cherished landmarks.
