Village Preservation (Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation)

Tuesday, May 21 6:30pm

“Noted architectural historian Francis Morrone’s “A History of the East Village and Its Architecture,” is part of Village Preservation’s effort to raise awareness and appreciation of the East Village’s rich history, and to advocate for its preservation. The report documents the East Village’s history from Dutch settlement in the 17th century and before, to its development in the 19th century as a prosperous merchant burg to immigrant gateway, its evolution in the 20th century from an epicenter of abandonment and blight to a center of cultural innovation and rebirth, to its struggle in the 21st century to maintain its identity in the face of renewed popularity and success.
Francis Morrone is a historian, writer, and lecturer. His publications include The New York Urban Landscape Guide, Ten Architectural Walks in Manhattan, and many others. Morrone was named in one of the 13 best tour guides in the world by Travel + Leisure magazine.
