Historic Districts Council birthday party!

I attended the 40th anniversary party this week for the Historic Districts Council, the citywide historic preservation advocacy group in New York City. I hoped to meet some key people who might be interested in my Landmarks: New York app. But even if that didn’t pan out, I’ve worked with HDC on and off for a few years and know various people in the group and in related efforts, so at least I’d be able to catch up with some friends and colleagues (and of course help the HDC cause).

It was a fun event, and successful from HDC’s perspective and certainly from mine. Among others, I introduced myself to the chair of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission and chatted with him for a bit about the app. I also met LPC’s communications director, caught up with longtime Municipal Art Society director Kent Barwick, and enjoyed the ambience of the Bohemian National Hall (OASISnyc map link, and BNH website).

I happened to look at HDC’s blog later in the week, and saw yours truly in their photo roundup! Here’s a fun picture of me looking inquisitively at LPC Chair Robert Tierney before I buttonholed him about the app 🙂 (that’s me on the right, gray jacket, with the inquisitive look):

Looking forward to another 40 years of HDC’s advocacy success — and working more closely with LPC on my app!
