Lower East Side Arts Open House at NPC

Village Preservation and the Historic Districts Council are housed at the Neighborhood Preservation Center. The entire building used to be the rectory of the adjacent St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery, until the lower floors were restored after a fire. Now, Village Preservation and Historic Districts Council have our offices in the bottom floors of the building. The rectory building, completed in 1901, was designed by Ernest Flagg in the Beaux-Arts style.

Join us for an open house, learn about our work, and get a special look at this historic building. HDC and Village Preservation staff will be on hand; ask your questions of Director of Research and Preservation Sarah Bean Apmann. See old images of the building and the neighborhood, which is located in the St. Mark’s Historic District, one of the city’s earliest designated historic districts.

This event is accessible, with eight steps up to the building.
