Welcome to FRIENDS' new website!

30th Annual Meeting & Awards Ceremony a Success!

We were thrilled to hold our 30th Annual Meeting & Awards Ceremony in the Park Avenue Armory’s Veterans Room, an interior landmark designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. The intact room has been described as “Greek, Moorish, and Celtic with a dash of the Egyptian, the Persian, and the Japanese.” A fitting setting for FRIENDS to recognize the fine restoration, renovation, and advocacy work on the Upper East Side!
