About Us

EHP Delivers Nonstop, Community-Driven Content

East Harlem Preservation, Inc. (EHP) is a volunteer advocacy organization founded in 2005 to preserve and promote the neighborhood’s history and culture. We provide news and updates on large-scale development, displacement and other issues of public concern to residents and stakeholders in East Harlem/El Barrio and surrounding areas. Our website and e-newsletter also help promote the work of local nonprofit cultural, educational, health, economic development, and environmental organizations. EHP also conducts educational walking tours and hosts public forums, film screenings and other events.

East Harlem Preservation Seeks Volunteers with Community Organizing, Graphic Design, and Media Experience!

We invite local writers, artists, community organizers, educators, web and graphic designers, photographers, video editors, and others to lend their talent and materials! Send us an email for more information about volunteer opportunities.

Public Recognition

In 2015, HDC selected East Harlem as one of the organization’s “Six to Celebrate” neighborhoods, and East Harlem Preservation was invited to serve as the local partner in the initiative.

HDC provided strategic resources to support our goal to showcase and preserve our neighborhood’s “buildings as canvases” tradition of outdoor murals and mosaics.

In 2009, East Harlem Preservation received a “New Yorkers for Better Neighborhoods” award from the Citizens Committee for New York  City for our environmental awareness efforts.


East Harlem Preservation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization (see our listing on the NYS Charities Database). Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law. Donors can make a secure electronic contribution through NYCCharities.org.

Feel free to email us if you’d prefer to make an in-kind gift of one of the items on EHP’s technology “wish list” or to volunteer your talent, services, or time. Please also be sure to also keep us informed abut your own activities as we continue to promote the good work that we all do for our community!
