Staten Island Preservation Forum

FREE- Walking tour with Francis Morrone with a reception at the Alice Austen House! June, 29

Alice Austen House

Thursday, June 29, 2017

Alice Austen House Museum 


Join HDC on Staten Island for a tour of a remarkable neighborhood and a discussion of preservation issues on the island. Despite Staten Island’s long and fascinating history, the borough is sorely lacking in designated landmarks. HDC has highlighted a number of individual properties (and neighborhoods) on the island through our Six to Celebrate program, but we’re always looking for new ways to build and grow preservation awareness on the island. Guests will accompany noted historian and Landmarks Lion  Francis Morrone through the Rosebank neighborhood surrounding the Alice Austen House, a National Historic Landmark and recently designated national site of LGBTQ history, followed by a small reception on the porch of the museum.
