Conservancy Discusses Accessibility Projects for Russian Television

A television crew from St. Petersburg, Russia visited the Conservancy Monday to learn about how historic religious buildings in New York City are being made accessible. Sacred Sites Director Ann Friedman and Michael Doyle from Acheson Doyle Partners Architects discussed Landmarks Preservation Commission guidelines and recent accessibility projects. The crew spent several days in Washington and New York visiting a host of officials and public buildings to see how our efforts compare to those in Russia.

The Conservancy recently co-sponsored an accessibility workshop with Acheson Doyle, St. Ignatius Loyola, and the Landmarks Preservation Commission, presenting recent accessibility projects at historic houses of worship.
