Greenwich Village Society of Historic Preservation is proud to present this discussion and book signing of “East Village: Lens on the Lower East Side.” Published by LESPI, Lower East Side Preservation Initiative, artfully chronicles through words and contemporary photographs the colorful past and still vibrant present of the area now known as the East Village.
LESPI’s mission is to preserve the Lower East Side through historic district designation; the book celebrates the area’s unique history and distinctive streetscapes while making the case for further preservation. The author, longtime resident and community advocate, Marilyn Appleberg, and several of the photographers, all of whom have their artistic roots in the East Village will be on hand to discuss the book and to answer questions. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Proceeds benefit LESPI, a non-profit organization.
