On January 14th, 1969, the St. Mark’s Historic District was designated, marking the area that was owned by Petrus Stuyvesant, who laid out Stuyvesant Street in 1787, along with St. Mark’s Church. Celebrate the district - which includes Stuyvesant, East 11th and East 10th Streets - for it has long been a seat of cultural, architectural, religious, and artistic significance.

Our birthday party will gather residents and neighbors to learn about the district’s history and how it’s thrived since designation.
We will be joined by:

Andrew Berman, Executive Director of Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation

* Stephen Facey, President of The St. Mark’s Historic Landmark Fund

* The Rev. Anne Sawyer, Rector, St. Mark’s Church

* Marilyn Appleberg, longtime East Village resident and the founder and president of the 10th and Stuyvesant Streets Block Association

* Elinor Nauen, Poet and Poetry Project Board Member
With a reception to follow provided by our neighbor and friend Veselka.

Co-sponsored by Saint Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery, the Historic District’s Council, the Neighborhood Preservation Center, the Poetry Project, and Veselka
