Event description

Description

Tour of East New York. Part of AIA Brooklyn 125 series of events. #aiabk125

East New York once buzzed with industry, burgeoning immigrant entrepreneurs and diverse cultures. It was a welcoming enclave for working-class immigrant families seeking refuge and mobility from the slums of Lower Manhattan. Ripe with economic opportunities, plentiful transportation options, East NY’s population grew and the richness of its diversity inspired its built environment. Unfortunately, after years of systematic disinvestment and neglect, the community became most known for its poverty and crime stats, with its architectural treasures often hidden in plain sight. Join Preserving East New York (PENY) a local group dedicated to the advocacy, education and awareness building of those treasures as they share the gems of their community and the innovative ways they have engaged East NY residents, civic leaders, property owners, and key stakeholders. In 2016, the East New York Rezone Plan was approved. PENY looks forward to the thoughtful, collaborative and inclusive development of a place where nearly 200,000 people call home. - 2CEU's
