EHP serves as East Harlem partner organization
for Historic District Council’s 2015 “Six to Celebrate”
The Historic Districts Council (HDC) has selected East Harlem as one of HDC’s Six to Celebrate for 2015, and East Harlem Preservation, Inc. is serving as the local partner organization in this dynamic initiative!
HDC’s Six to Celebrate program provides strategic resources to neighborhood groups to reach their preservation goals. East Harlem Preservation’s goal is to showcase our neighborhood’s “buildings as canvases” tradition of outdoor murals and mosaics and to work to preserve and restore endangered community art.
HDC’s provides hands-on help on all aspects of our preservation efforts over the course of the year and continued support in the years to come. For more information on the program, please visit the Six to Celebrate website.
