Mark your calendar: The next meeting of Save Our Seaport will be on Wednesday, November 18, at 6:30 in the St. Margaret’s House conference rooms. More to come…..
In the meantime, our friends at Historic Districts Council want to let you know about a great program that HDC started last year called Preservation School. The series seeks to provide basic background and skills about historic preservation in NYC in an informal setting. The classes are held on Monday nights once a month from September to June at their Neighborhood Preservation Center (232 East 11th Street). Each class lasts about an hour and includes a Q&A period. Last year 8 classes were offered, all very well received. The series is offered again this year with a few new classes mixed in (see the list below).
You’re invited and welcome to join for any and all of the 2015-16 series. Also, please forward the info to any friends, neighbors or colleagues that you think might be interested. Spread the word!
Here is the list of classes and dates still to come:
- Working with Elected Officials (NEW!) – December 7
- Zoning 101 – February 8
- Architectural Photography – March 14
- Reading Architectural Drawings – April 11
- Building Materials – May 9
- Social Media for Preservation Campaigns (NEW!) – June 13
