Subject

The Bloomingdale Conservation Project, 1959-1964

Description

In the Bloomingdale Neighborhood History Group's files, we have a red folder of newspaper clippings about the Bloomingdale Conservation Project, created by Ginger Lief. Most of the clippings are from the New York Times, and those articles are fairly easy to find online through the New York Times's Archives (see links below). There are also a few articles from what seem to be local papers no longer in existence, which we have scanned for you and posted here. The Bloomingdale Conservation Project was a counterpoint to the "urban renewal" projects which had just razed a large swath of the Upper West Side. It was an effort to improve conditions between 96th Street and 104th Street west of Amsterdam Avenue without tearing down the buildings and removing the residents.

Creator

The Morningsider and the "WSN." Bruce R. Buckley is one author. We hope to learn more about the publications and will update this entry if we do.
