The Stonewall National Historic Landmark: 1969, 1999, and Beyond
In 1999, Village Preservation co-sponsored the nomination of a Stonewall Historic District to the National Register of Historic Places, which made it the first site ever associated with LGBT history to be so recognized by the federal government.
On the 10th Anniversary of the listing, this panel discussion will look back on this milestone and how it was achieved, and look ahead to further future possibilities for recognizing important facets of LGBT life and history in New York City. Featuring Stonewall author David Carter, artist and Stonewall Riots participant Tommy Lanigan-Schmidt, architect Françoise Bollack, staff member of the Research Department at the Landmarks Preservation Commission Jay Shockley, and moderated by Village Preservation Executive Director Andrew Berman.
