In Danger of Extinction: Gentrification in East Harlem and on the Lower East Side

Join the filmmakers for a screening and discussion of "The Lower East Side: An Endangered Place" by Robert Weber and "Whose Barrio?" by Ed Morales and Laura Rivera, with opening remarks by The Honorable Melissa Mark-Viverito, New York City Council, District 8.
Co-sponsored by the office of the New York City Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito and East Harlem Preservation. This program is presented as part of the ongoing series The Urban Forum: New York Neighborhoods, Preservation and Development
