The Red-Tail Hawks of Greenwich Village and the East Village
A lecture and slideshow with Gabriel Willow

Wednesday, March 25
6:30 – 8:00 P.M.
Free; reservations required
Washington Square Institute, 51 East 11th Street,
between Broadway and University Place
[Please note this venue is not wheelchair accessible.]

If you have ever seen the group of people in Washington Square Park with their binoculars, cameras and zoom lenses focused on the top floor of NYU’s Bobst Library, then you’re probably aware of the pair of red-tail hawks that built a nest on a window ledge, and have made Washington Square their home and hunting grounds. Similarly, a pair of red-tails has built a nest on the Christodora House adjacent to Tompkins Square Park. Both pairs have successfully raised offspring for the past several years.

Gabriel Willow is a naturalist, guide, and educator with New York City Audubon, who will describe the nesting, mating, and hunting habits of these predators, and explain why we should welcome them to our neighborhoods.

To register, please call (212) 475-9585 ext. 35 or email.

Steamboats on the Hudson: The Greenwich Village Waterfront
A history with Liz McEnaney

Tuesday, March 31
6:30 – 8:00 P.M.
Free; reservations required
Salmagundi Club, 47 5th Avenue, near 12th Street
[Please note this venue is not wheelchair accessible.]

In the years between 1807 and 1971, the Hudson River was alive with boat traffic. The great Hudson River Day Liners were perhaps the best known of all the vessels – famous for their elegance and speed. New Yorkers and visitors alike experienced the river and the magnificent landscapes from the decks and plush salons of these grand dames.

Join Liz McEnaney, Executive Director of the SS Columbia Project, for an illustrated lecture about how the vessels, such as the Day Liners, shaped the development of the Greenwich Village waterfront.
  
The SS Columbia Project’s office is located in the historic Ernest Flagg Rectory, in the St. Mark’s Historic District, where GVSHP offices are also located, at 232 East 11th Street.

To register, please call (212) 475-9585 ext. 35 or email.

Mimi Sheraton is a journalist, restaurant critic, consultant, lecturer, and cookbook writer who has lived in Greenwich Village for 70 years. She was the restaurant critic for the New York Times from 1976 until 1984 and has written 17 books on food and recipes, including her latest, 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die. She is also a contributor to GVSHP’s book Greenwich Village Stories.

In conversation with Karen Loew of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, Sheraton will talk about what’s changed over her years in the food world: food trends, the role of the critic, the role of restaurant dining in the life of New York, and much more. If Gotham is on a plate, Mimi Sheraton will definitely have a choice opinion to render about it.

Both 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die and Greenwich Village Stories will be available for purchase and signing.

“Gotham on a Plate: Food and NYC” is a 2-day symposium at The New School.
Tickets may be purchased at www.events.newschool.edu

Free; reservations required

The Lowline is a plan to use innovative solar technology to illuminate the one-acre former Williamsburg Bridge Trolley Terminal, just below Delancey Street.   The result will be a stunning underground park, providing a beautiful respite and a cultural attraction in one of the world’s most dense, exciting urban environments.  The site was opened in 1908 for trolley passengers, but has been unused since 1948.

James Ramsey, Co-Founder and Creator, is the inventor of the remote skylight, which delivers sunlight below ground using a system of optics. In 2004, Ramsey opened design practice RAAD, and they have since built over a hundred projects, both in NYC and across the country.

New York City is world-renowned for its skyline, and high atop its lofty heights beats a feast of breathtaking rooftop destinations for every taste and imagination.  ROOF EXPLORER’S GUIDE: 101 New York City Rooftops by Leslie Adatto is the first and ultimate guide to an urban treasure trove of rooftop gems, from hotel rooftop bars and restaurants to elevated parks to museums, theaters, green roofs and elevated farms.  For us, Leslie will focus on the images in her book of rooftops in Greenwich Village, the East Village and NoHo.

Leslie Adatto has been seeking out New York City rooftops since relocating to Manhattan in 2010.  She blogs about New York City rooftops, and lives, bikes, and cooks in the West Village.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

100 Years of Preservation:
A Conversation with Anthony C. Wood
Co-sponsored by the New York Preservation Archive Project

This program has reached capacity and we are no longer accepting reservations.

Thursday, April 30
6:30 – 8:00 P.M.
Free; reservations required
The Baha'i Center, 53 East 11th Street, between Broadway and University Place
[This venue is not wheelchair accessible.]

Join Anthony C. Wood, founder of the New York Preservation Archive Project and author of Preserving New York: Winning the Right to Protect a City’s Landmarks, for an intimate discussion of what led to the passage of NYC’s 1965 landmarks law, how it has affected the urban environment since, and the prognosis for preservation looking forward.

In conversation with GVSHP’s Karen Loew, Wood will illuminate the long struggle that preceded the landmark law and the forces that shaped it. As we examine the architectural losses on the way to the law and the preservation of so many remarkable buildings since, we will also evaluate the current political landscape and how preservation may evolve in the 21st century.


This program is part of NYC Landmarks50 Alliance, the multi-year celebration of the 50th anniversary of New York City's Landmarks Law.

 

To register, please call (212) 475-9585 ext. 35 or email.
