Preserving Our Neighborhood

Here’s a chance to do more than just complain about development in Forest Hills.

Preservation Vision: Planning for the Future of Preservation in New York City is a year-long initiative to engage those interested in preservation in a conversation about their aspirations for preservation in New York City in the year 2030 and the actions needed to make those hopes a reality.

Project Description:

Over the past 60 years the historic preservation movement has made significant contributions to the prosperity and growth of New York City. In a city as dynamic and economically prosperous as New York the movement has taken hold, had an impact and enhanced the culture, character and quality of life in the city.

Today we are at the beginning of a new planning period for another anticipated time of rapid growth and change. City wide planning efforts, including PlaNYC, will impact all sectors. Contributing to these discussions is critical if historic preservation is to continue to play a role in shaping the city’s future.

To be fully prepared to contribute to the city-wide planning efforts, preservation must consider its’ own best prospects and ideal role for the future. To create this unique forum for members of the preservation movement and other interested New Yorkers to discuss, debate and create a vision for the future Preservation Vision: Planning for the Future of Preservation in New York City has been launched.

This project is the initiative of a group of New York City charitable funders with long-standing interest in the preservation sector. See Who’s Involved. The project is managed by the non-profit organization, Minerva Partners.

    I would like to talk about the streets in and around Austin street. In order to get around and look for parking, you practically have to go to the ends of Austin Street before you can turn around to circle back. I get mad at those drivers who just pull a u-turn because it stops traffic both ways. If there were more 2-way streets the congestion would be alleviated somewhat.

    A great place to air your thoughts (all good, and certainly ones I share!) is at the next plaNYC meeting. See latter post on this–

    This is exactly the kind of thing that got discussed in November, and I think you could push for it at this next meeting.
