Latest Plaque Unveiled Honoring Photographer and Artist Saul Leiter at 111 East 10th Street

We were joined by hundreds on Wednesday for the unveiling of Village Preservation’s latest plaque, honoring photographer and artist Saul Leiter at his former home and studio at 111 East 10th Street (Second/Third Avenues). We were fortunate to also be joined by Margit Erb, founder and director of the Saul Leiter Foundation; art critic and curator Vince Aletti; and author, community leader, and longtime Leiter neighbor Marilyn Appleburg. Watch video of the unveiling ceremony here, and see images here.

This is our 24th plaque unveiling. Our plaque program has honored and marked the homes of local figures from Jane Jacobs to James Baldwin and Jean-Michel Basquiat; Allen Ginsberg to Charles Mingus; Frank O’Hara to Frank Stella; and Martha Graham to Lorraine Hansberry, as well as historically significant sites such as the former NAACP headquarters, the Fillmore East, and Julius’ Bar.
