Welcome to FRIENDS' new website!

Columbia University Yorkville Studio II Community Presentation

FRIENDS has been working for the last four years to document the cultural resources of Yorkville. We have now embarked the second phase of this project by partnering with students in the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation at Columbia University. Led by Ward Dennis (Adjunct Professor and partner at Higgins & Quasebarth), first-year historic preservation students have studied Yorkville for their spring “studio” course – an exercise in developing a comprehensive neighborhood preservation plan. FRIENDS invites members of the community to a presentation of these findings co-hosted by Council Member Benjamin Kallos, followed by a brief reception.
