Saving the Bowery

This coming Monday, September 28th at 7:00 pm, Dixon Place is hosting The Vanishing City Forum Series Part III: "The Historical and Cultural Price of the Changing Bowery." The night should prove to be a celebration of the Bowery's richly diverse heritage, and a cautionary tale on how overdevelopment can threaten the integrity of a neighborhood. With a panel of zoning experts, film directors, public advocates, historians and journalists, the discussion will probe the side effects of poor urban planning: displaced residents, the loss of small businesses, and diminished cultural diveristy, not to mention destroying historic charm.
