Walking Tour: Downtown: Planning and Preservation

11:38 PM EST on December 26, 2006

Not since the 1960s has there been so much focus on developing Downtown. Then, as now, the challenge is preserving its historic fabric. The tour will focus on landmarking and redevelopment in the area around the transportation center of the Fulton/Nassau Street corridor, including recent losses and compromises. The tour will include the Corbin Building, early works of DeLemos and Cordes, plus some interesting cast-iron buildings. Bring a MetroCard. Leader: Joe Svehlak, urban preservationist.
