Landmarking the East Village: A Lecture with Village Preservation Director of Preservation and Research Elizabeth Finkelstein

Part of Village Preservation’s 30th Anniversary Staff Past and Present Series

From its early days as a rowhouse neighborhood, to a tenement district home to Germans, the Irish, Jews, Italians, Eastern Europeans, and most recently Latinos, the East Village has a rich cultural and architectural history that is still intact today. Village Preservation is currently surveying this neighborhood to better understand its architectural resources and character. Join Elizabeth Finkelstein, Village Preservation Director of Preservation and Research as she details the nuts and bolts of this multi-year project, shares some of the more interesting historical tidbits uncovered to date, and notes how we move from research and discovery, to a proposal for landmarking.
