EHP to serve as East Harlem partner organization
for Historic District Council’s 2015 “Six to Celebrate”
We wanted to alert you to an important announcement by the Historic Districts Council (HDC)! East Harlem has been selected as one of HDC’s Six to Celebrate for 2015, and East Harlem Preservation, Inc. will serve as the local partner organization in this dynamic initiative!
As noted in their press release (see below), HDC’s Six to Celebrate program provides strategic resources to neighborhood groups to reach their preservation goals. The selected groups receive HDC’s hands-on help on all aspects of their 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.
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.
We are looking forward to working with HDC in the year ahead!
