The New York Preservation Archive Project’s public programming celebrates and analyzes important episodes in preservation history.
A Toast to the Penn Station Picketers: Honoring AGBANY, Peter Stamton, and Fellow Demonstrators
August 1, 2022 6-8:00pm at Tracks Raw Bar and Grill
Join us on August 1st at Tracks Raw Bar and Grill where the Archive Project will celebrate the efforts of Action Group for Better Architecture (AGBANY) and one of the groups original founders Peter Samton. Sixty years ago, AGBANY transformed the way historic preservation would play out in New York City. Their efforts to save Penn Station inspired a new level of connectedness between the general public and the preservation process. We hope to see you there on August 1, from 6:00-8:00pm at Tracks Raw Bar and Grill.
