View Website

From New York to San Antonio and Savannah to Providence, women have been in the forefront of historic preservation, fighting highways, securing landmark status or leading other civic battles that have saved and restored our cities. Join Roberta Brandes Gratz, an award-winning journalist and urban critic who founded the effort to restore the Museum at Eldridge Street's historic home as she leads a conversation with leading minds in the world of civic action and preservation. Claudette Brady, co-founder of the Bedford-Stuyvesant Society for Historic Preservation; Anne Van Ingen, Chairman of the Board for the Preservation League of New York and Advisor to the National Trust for Historic Preservation; and Lloyd Zuckerberg, a partner in Samson Investments who manages the firm's real estate holdings will explore the powerful role that women have played in our city's historic and cultural preservation. This forum is cosponsored by the Center for the Living City.
