With Village Preservation Director of Research and Preservation Sarah Bean Apmann
Friday, Jan. 29 at 2:00pm
Adaptive reuse, the process of adapting old structures for new uses, defines the built landscape of our neighborhoods. From a preservation perspective, this process is a creative way to preserve historic buildings while updating them for living and working. Village Preservation’s Sarah Bean Apmann will illuminate many examples of adaptive reuse in Greenwich Village, the East Village, and Noho: the Westbeth artists’ residence; the Jefferson Market Library; and the 1900 St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery Rectory, designed by Ernest Flagg and repurposed to house neighborhood non-profits and community organizations, including Village Preservation.
Sarah Bean Apmann is Village Preservation’s Director of Research and Preservation. She has worked as an architectural historian in historic preservation for the past twenty years. She received her BA in History from Lehigh University and her MS in Historic Preservation from Columbia University.
