Friday Night Social And LPC Postcard Signing
Two free drinks for the first 100 people to come in and sign a postcard to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC)! Join the Sunset Park Landmarks Committee (SPLC) on Friday, July 17th from 7-10pm in the back room at the Irish Haven on 58th Street and 4th Avenue. Sign a postcard urging the LPC to take action and Landmark Sunset Park ASAP!
In March, the SPLC led a neighborhood tour with LPC Chair, Meenakshi Srinivasan, and other key LPC staff. The tour was great and they loved Sunset Park. But the LPC hasn’t taken action to move the landmarking process forward. We need to keep telling them that we want action now!
Help us put the pressure on! Come and sign a postcard and let’s send them hundreds of messages from Sunset Park residents demanding action.
Everyone is welcome to this free event.
Get your preservation on! Party to preserve Sunset Park's historic houses and preserve affordable housing!
Tickets are $20/person. 50% of the proceeds will go to benefit the Sunset Park Landmarks Committee and 50% will be donated to Neighbors Helping Neighbors (NHN), a tenant advocacy agency based in Sunset Park. NHN is fighting to preserve 400 units of Section 8 housing. Help preserve Sunset Park's Section 8 housing - come to the Preservation Party!
Admission includes 2 drinks, a light buffet, live music, a dance performance, and great prizes made locally at Industry City.
Can’t make it? We’ll miss you — but we’ll happily accept any donation you’d like to make via our website (scroll to the bottom of the page to find the Donate link).
Many thanks! Muchas gracias! Zhìxiè! 多謝!

When: Saturday, October 18, 2014, 7pm - 10pm
Tour the heart of Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
Learn how Sunset Park's history makes it special and wonderfully different from other Brownstone Brooklyn nabes. Learn about how its built environment shaped Sunset Park: from the history of Bush Terminal, the 4th Avenue subway, and the first coops in the U.S. in the early 1900s, to the Section 8 housing of the 1970s, which stabilized the neighborhood and helped it transition out of blight.
The tour begins at 10:00 am and ends on 8th Avenue in Sunset Park's Chinatown. Just in time for you to head off and indulge in some amazing dim sum!
Your $15 tour admission is payable at the start of the tour in person. Sorry, we can't take payments online, though we do need you to reserve a spot on the tour by sending us a message here, on the Contact Us page.
