Ann-Isabel Friedman

Director, Sacred Sites

Ann-Isabel Friedman has been with the Conservancy’s Sacred Sites Program since 2001, initiating a city-wide survey of historic religious properties in 2004.  She is an active member of the Boerum Hill Association and holds an M.S. in Historic Preservation from the University of Pennsylvania and an A.B. in American Studies from Cornell University.  Friedman joined the Conservancy after seven years at the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, where she was a deputy director of the Preservation Department.

Favorite Landmark: St. Augustine’s Roman Catholic Church, a contributing component of the Park Slope Historic District Extension II.  The church is distinguished by a monumental sandstone tower, matching rectory, a double apse at both front and rear of sanctuary, inlaid marble floor with pelican imagery, jewel-studded tabernacle rising out of an alabaster altar, and a Tiffany light fixture.
