100 Years of Preservation:
A Conversation with Anthony C. Wood
Join Anthony C. Wood, founder of the New York Preservation Archive Project and author of Preserving New York: Winning the Right to Protect a City’s Landmarks, for an intimate discussion of what led to the passage of NYC’s 1965 landmarks law, how it has affected the urban environment since, and the prognosis for preservation looking forward.
In conversation with Village Preservation’s Karen Loew, Wood will illuminate the long struggle that preceded the landmark law and the forces that shaped it. As we examine the architectural losses on the way to the law and the preservation of so many remarkable buildings since, we will also evaluate the current political landscape and how preservation may evolve in the 21st century.
