Christina Crichlow joined the New York Landmarks Conservancy as a Development Associate in 2017. She is a Brooklyn native and a graduate of Long Island University. Some of her experience prior to joining the Conservancy includes, working at Mikimoto America as a member of the marketing team and working for several private sector firms throughout the city. Christina believes that preservation is vital because it allows the public to have a voice in the construction and developments taking place in their communities.
Favorite Landmark: The Ansonia is one of Christina’s favorite landmark buildings because of the french design and aristocratic feel. She first noticed it many years ago while attending a piano recital on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The circular towers located at each corner of the elegant landmark were the most striking. Additionally, the recessed courts on each side of the structure, the balconies and the domed corners at the top of the towers are elements that were eye-catching. Christina believes this former hotel, now residence is one of the most unique structures in the area.
