The Historic Districts Council this month will present six organizations and individuals with “Grassroots Preservation Awards” during its annual event. And 6sqft is one of the lucky winners! Help celebrate us, as well as the rest of the awardees, who will be honored for their work preserving New York City’s historic neighborhoods. The event takes place on Tuesday, April 24 at the Saint Mark’s Church-In-The-Bowery, located at 131 East 10th Street.
The ceremony begins at 6 p.m., followed by a reception. The event is open to the public for $30, and $20 for Friends of HDC. Individual tickets will be sold at the door.
“The Historic Districts Council is proud to honor these worthy advocates who promote preservation across the city in a myriad of ways,” Simeon Bankoff, the executive director of HDC, said. “New York City is better and more vibrant because of them.”
