Rachel Levy joined the LW! team as a Graduate Intern in January and will continue working at LW! this summer. She is a first year (almost second year!) student in Columbia University’s graduate program in historic preservation.
Though originally from the small coastal town of Falmouth, Maine, Rachel loves New York City’s buildings and neighborhoods and has lived here for four years. She is passionate about preservation advocacy and loves the local, community-based approach LW! takes toward preservation issues.
From learning the ins and outs of LW’s Certificate of Appropriateness Committee, to the lessons of advocacy 101, Rachel is excited to dig deeper into Upper West Side preservation and advocacy this summer! Expect more posts from her as these crisp spring days transition into the steamy days of summer.
