Documenting, Celebrating, & Preserving the History & Architecture of the East Village – 6th Street, Avenues B & C and Beyond

Learn about Village Preservation’s effort to raise awareness and appreciation of the East Village’s history and advocate for its preservation. From the recently released report A History of the East Village and Its Architecture to the online resource East Village Building Blocks, learn more about the neighborhood’s 350-year history and efforts to protect it.
With a presentation by Village Preservation’s Director of Research and Preservation Sarah Bean Apmann, the evening will focus on, but not be limited to, the area around the 6th Street Community Center, our host for the evening, on 6th Street between Avenues B and C. Currents in neighborhood history and architecture connected to the organization and space, including synagogues, adaptive reuse, and community gardens, will also be highlighted.

The 6th Street Community Center is housed in a former synagogue and has been working to empower the Loisaida community since 1978.

This event is accessible, with six stairs up to the building.
