Preservation Trivia Night

January 21, 2015
6:30-8:00 p.m.
The Paris Cafe

What was the first interior landmark in New York City? What preservationist is best known for crying out, “Someone has stolen one of my buildings!”? What notable building currently sits on the site of the original Waldorf Astoria? Competition was fierce at Preservation Trivia Night as New York City preservationists worked in teams to answer these questions and more, battling it out for bragging rights (and a bar tab at the historic Paris Café)! Because the event was co-sponsored with the Historic Districts Council, FRIENDS of the Upper East Side Historic Districts, Preservation Alumni, Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, and Pratt Historic Preservation Alumni, a diverse crowd came out to test their knowledge of New York City preservation history. Trivia rounds included “Know Your Landmarks,” which focused on the history of landmark designation, “Rest in Pieces: Landmarks That Have Died and Gone to Heaven,” and “New York City in 1965,” a special round devoted to the year the Landmarks Law was passed. The evening was a fun, and fitting, kickoff to the year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Landmarks Law in 2015.
