    East New York is bracing for change following the city’s decision to rezone the area. As this saga continues, a group of locals are holding a walking tour to celebrate and promote the preservation of some local architectural gems.

    Zulmilena Then and Farrah Lafontant of Preserving East New York will lead the tour, which will highlight the history of what makes the neighborhood a unique place that should be celebrated.

    Preserving East New York (PENY) is a group formed in recent years to protect the neighborhood (including nearby Cypress Hills) and its architectural treasures. PENY, along with the Historic Districts Council, believes that buildings in the neighborhoods are worth saving and should be shown off.

    The Empire State Dairy Co. complex was calendared in March, so it could be landmarked in the next few months.

    The walking tour, put on in conjunction with the Municipal Art Society, will take place January 15, 2017 at 12 p.m. Tickets are $30 for non-members of MAS, and $20 for members. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
