MHNA P&D Committee Honored by GANYC
Monday, April 27, 2020
The Murray Hill Neighborhood Association Preservation & Design Committee was honored by the Guides Association of New York City with an Apple Award for Outstanding Achievement in Support of NYC Preservation. Susan Demmet, Co-Chair of the P&D Committee, received the award on behalf of the committee at the 2020 GANYC Apple Awards event on March 2 held at the SVA Theatre. The P&D Committee has several programs that brought their work to the attention of GANYC. The committee recently produced a new DVD of the Murray Hill walking tour. They also offer monthly walking tours throughout the year and at the annual street festival. They are working with the Landmarks Preservation Commission to get landmark designation for additional buildings in Murray Hill, and they launched a program in 2018 to install Cultural Medallions on buildings in the neighborhood. Cultural Medallions give a short description of significant people who lived in Murray Hill and are installed on the buildings where they lived. Four buildings now have cultural medallions.
