A Series of Free Workshops on How to Improve East Harlem’s Environmental Sustainability and Preserve the Neighborhood’s Historic Homes and Cultural Identity

Our neighborhood is at a crossroads, facing a number of threats including climate change, development, and gentrification.

  • Preservation 101 Workshop by Ascendant Neighborhood Development - Participants will discuss what needs to be preserved in the community and learn about the various tools of preservation, landmarking buildings, and tax credits.
