The History & Future of the Bowery

Join us for a lively program of film, history, vintage Bowery songs and poetry, and a forum on current efforts to preserve and protect this remarkable street. The city’s oldest thoroughfare, the Bowery has helped foster everything from tap dance, minstrelsy, vaudeville, Yiddish theater, Beat literature, abstract expressionism, and punk rock. Poised for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, its historic sense of place is threatened by development. Sponsored by the Bowery Alliance of Neighbors and Two Bridges Neighborhood Council.

Kent Barwick (former chair, Landmarks Preservation Commission); Simeon Bankoff (Ex Director, Historic Districts Council); Victor Papa (Two Bridges Neighborhood Council); Kerri Culhane (architectural historian); Eric Ferrara (author, The Bowery: A History of Grit, Graft, & Grandeur).

Poor Baby Bree (chanteuse) & Franklin Bruno (pianist), Bob Holman (poet), John Campo & Tom Ryan (musicians, The VagabondVelonators).
