Join us for a full day of festivities to celebrate the completion of a major restoration to one of New York City’s oldest homes!

Thanks largely to public voting, the Alice Austen House received a major grant from American Express Partners in Partners in Preservation program, a partnership of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the American Express Foundation, to make much-needed repairs to the woodwork and give the house a fresh coat of paint. Join us to see the results of what you helped accomplish! Featuring tours on the hour and performances on the lawn, curated by Deep Tanks Studio. This program is part of the NYC Landmarks50 Alliance, the multi-year celebration of the 50th anniversary of New York City's Landmarks Law. 

There will be food, performances, family activities, tours, music, games and more!
