Highly Acclaimed Four-Day Continuing Education Classes Begin Next Monday — Register Now
Village Preservation’s Fall Continuing Education program begins next Monday, spanning four days of in-person and virtual learning on October 16, 18, 23, and 25. This incredibly popular program, now in its 13th year, gives you an intimate, personal audience with acclaimed professionals in the fields of architecture, zoning, and history, to gain a greater appreciation for how New York City and our neighborhoods grew and evolved.
You’ll learn why regulations shaping the size and placement of buildings were first established in New York City, and how they’ve come to be the most complex building regulatory system in the country. You’ll see how townhouse architectural styles evolved, and what they represented over two centuries. And you’ll get to experience up close Jane Jacobs’ legacy and inspirations in Greenwich Village, as well as the remarkable and vulnerable architecture found South of Union Square, through the eyes of trained experts, and so much more.
Village Preservation’s 22.5-hour Continuing Education program includes all recent legal requirements for real estate professionals in cultural competency, ethical business practices, recent legal matters, implicit bias awareness, agency law, and principles of fair housing and discrimination. However, the course is also designed to be a great learning experience for any member of the public who cares deeply about our city and neighborhoods, and their built environment. Discounted rates are available for Village Preservation members, as well as those not requiring State continuing education credits.
