Layered SPURA Tour


Location Information

Layered SPURA Tour

SaturdayDec 7 2019 @ 2 PM - 2:30 PM

For 50 years, residents of the Lower East Side lived with a series of vacant lots known as the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area (SPURA)—what is now home to Essex Crossing. Artist and urbanist Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani, along with her students at the New School, has collaborated with community organizations City Lore, GOLES, and SPARC to produce Layered SPURA, a series of exhibitions and walks designed to provide new opportunities for dialogue about this highly contested neighborhood. Join Gabrielle for a participatory Layered SPURA tour to better understand the urban past, present, and future(s) of Essex Crossing and the Lower East Side.

Meet at Essex Market (Delancey Street entrance)
