Sean became Executive Director in August 2017. He joined LW! in 2015 as Advocacy Director after a decade of applying his Bachelor’s (Cooper Union) and Master’s (Yale University) of Architecture degrees in NYC design firms. He brings his knowledge of Building Code, Zoning and Materials to the field for each LW! scrimmage. If not at a City Agency hearing, he can be found searching the Upper West Side for the perfect bagel, or teaching architecture history and theory at the New York Institute of Technology.
Sean’s favorite neighborhood landmark building is Clarence True’s Flemish Revival Oyster Market at 426 Columbus Avenue – now a Patagonia location.
Andra joined the LW! team in September 2016 after nearly ten years with an international NGO as Director of Operations and Pro Bono Recruitment. She holds a bachelor’s degree in international studies from Miami University (Ohio) and a Masters in Public Service Administration from Spertus College (Chicago). Andra’s first job was with Habitat for Humanity, and is an ardent fan of architecture, DIY, and the power of volunteers. She is a self-admitted history junkie and believes historic landmarks and landscapes contribute invaluably to the culture and character of our communities.
Andra’s favorite UWS building-this week-is the former Automat at The Horn & Hardardt Building at 2710 Broadway, designed in 1930 by F. P. Platt & Bro.
