Our incredible Preservation Consultant, Marissa Marvelli was interviewed by PLNYS about the project:

The Reconnaissance Level Survey of East Harlem South/El Barrio was completed last February 2022 by AND’s hired preservation consultant, Marissa Marvelli. The report received an award for Excellence in Historic Preservation from the Preservation League of New York (PLNY). Ms. Marvelli and AND officially received the award during PLNY’s awards ceremony on November 7, 2022. The announcement was accompanied by a video with a brief interview given by Ms. Marvelli followed by a press release [see below]. This achievement was made possible in part by a $12,000 Preserve NY grant through the Preservation League of New York State. The survey identifies potential individual State/National Register (S/NR) listings and the boundaries of potential S/NR historic districts. We are so happy to see this important work being acknowledged, providing additional momentum for our ongoing preservation work in the neighborhoods of East Harlem.
