WSHS Programs

Some of the historical society‚Äôs programs continue its members’ various efforts to promote preservation (under the “Friends of the Lower West Side” community group and “Save Washington Street” campaign), but beyond these educational and research efforts, a new artifact collection program and an adopt-a-park project (now proposing a full memorial for the literary heritage of the area) have become core, initial programs of the historical society.

With growing membership and greater capacity, these programs can be augmented and new projects initiated to broaden education about the neighborhood. The core program categories are: preservation, collections, research and education, and memorialization (signs and public art).
