Many thanks to those who turned out for, helped to organize, or in any
other way pitched in to make last weekend’s conference a success. We
were pleased that so many people turned out, especially from the
community. Many expressed a desire for ongoing events along the same
lines: for now we’d refer them to the Vanishing City community events
that have happened time to time at Dixon Place, to to the ongoing
activities of the Lower East Side History Project, and to the Tenement
Museum’s speaker series. (Tonight’s talk features authors and bloggers Michelle and James Nevius of Inside the Apple.) Meanwhile we’ll look forward to more ways to bring people together on these themes.
