Program 2

Education

FRIENDS works hard to educate the public. For children, FRIENDS offers educational programming for 1st through 5th graders, focusing on the appreciation of the built environment and neighborhood history. Our goal is to stimulate an interest in architecture, history, and preservation at a young age, while also instilling a sense of community pride and awareness. The program supports the New York State Learning Standards for Social Studies, Language Arts, and the Visual Arts. For adults, FRIENDS holds walking tours and lectures throughout the year about the Upper East Side and New York City history.
