Hi Friends and Neighbors-


We rescheduled The Vanishing City that was snowed out in February’s “Snowcopalypse” to Tuesday, April 20th at 6:30 – (the DP lounge opens at 6PM with 2for1 drinks).  This chapter in our continuing series is hosted by David Freeland, author of “Automats, Taxi Dances, & Vaudeville” with guests including the multi-faceted and always entertaining Trav S. D.; Cindy Vandenbosch, founder of Urban Oyster walking tours; and Simeon Bankoff, Executive Director, Historic Districts Council.  The presentation will cover New York’s disappearing theaters and historic entertainment sites that are under constant threat from gentrification and redevelopment.  The panel will address the importance of preserving these landmarks and the impact it has on the quality of life for the city and neighborhood.

Please join us for a night of education, history, and community fellowship as we come together to discuss one of the most complex topics regarding life in New York today.  We would greatly appreciate it if you could post this event to your website or forward it to your network and neighbors.

$10 tickets at the door or this link.
