Presenting to Landmark West! on the Upper West Side
Yesterday we presented to attendees at an event sponsored by Landmark West! on the Upper West Side. We spoke about our LGBT preservation efforts since the 1990s (which led to the founding of our project in 2015), our project goals, and historic sites we have identified so far on the Upper West Side. Thanks to all who came and gave additional site suggestions.
If you have suggestions for LGBT historic sites on the Upper West Side (or elsewhere in the city), please fill out our form!
Upper West Side Historic Sites
Looking Back on our First “Tenement Talk”
November 3, 2016
Last night we gave our first “Tenement Talk” at the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side. We highlighted LGBT historic sites we have found in the neighborhood so far and also took site suggestions from the audience.
Donald Albrecht, curator of the “Gay Gotham” exhibition now on view at the Museum of the City of New York, introduced our talk.
Many thanks to the staff of the Tenement Museum for organizing this event!
