Next Tuesday (10/5), the Museum of the City of New York is hosting a screening event called “In Danger of Extinction: Gentrification in East Harlem and on the Lower East Side.” The museum was kind enough to extend a discount to all Bowery Boogie readers. Just mention our name at the door, and it’s $6.
Here is a description of the screening:
In Danger of Extinction: Gentrification in East Harlem and on the Lower East Side
Residents of these two diverse, vibrant neighborhoods have long dealt with the pressures of gentrification and have struggled for affordability. Their story is told in two recent documentaries. Join the filmmakers for a screening and discussion of The Lower East Side: An Endangered Place by Robert Weber and Whose Barrio? by Ed Morales and Laura Rivera, with opening remarks by the Honorable Melissa Mark-Viverito, New York City Council, District 8.
Co-sponsored by the office of the New York City Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito and East Harlem Preservation. This program is presented as part of the ongoing series The Urban Forum: New York Neighborhoods, Preservation and Development.
