Single Story Project

March 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

In NYC, the 1-story building is practically an endangered species. Between 2015 and 2019, professional photographer Adam Friedberg documented every single-story building in the East Village and the Lower East Side. A longtime East Village resident, he noticed how quickly these most humble structures were disappearing, a reflection of the rapid development and gentrification of the neighborhood. He came to understand that not only were the buildings being sold, but an entire, primarily working-class, economy (workshops, garages, fast food joints) and culture (storefront churches and community centers) was disappearing. Friedberg, joined in discussion by architectural historian Alan Brake, brings to Landmark West his powerful images of a changing city. Single-Story Project prompts us to pause and consider the value of these places before they are lost or forgotten.
