Place Matters Celebrates 10th Anniversary

This evening, City Lore and the Municipal Art Society are honoring 10 great places around the 5 boroughs for the ways they contribute to our communities and city. The event is also a celebration of the 10th anniversary of Place Matters, a project of the two organizations. This evening's event is sold out, but Place Matters has prepared the video above for those who cannot attend.
