Vicki Weiner has fifteen years of experience in historic preservation in New York City, and has been teaching at Pratt since 2001. She has served as Executive Director of two New York City non-profit, preservation organizations — the Historic Districts Council and the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation – where she worked with communities to create City, State and Nationally designated historic districts, developed preservation strategies and public policy initiatives, and produced publications, educational programs and conferences. Vicki first came to Pratt Center for Community Development as Preservation Specialist to develop and lead projects that explore the connection between preserving culturally important places and creating more equitable communities. She completed a year-long study of the Fulton Street Mall that analyzed the Mall’s history and importance to various stakeholders, and made recommendations for using innovative historic preservation strategies to improve the Mall for users and non-users alike. Phase 2 of the work on Fulton Street Mall has just commenced, and will result in the creation of preservation-oriented development plans for several sites along Fulton Street. Recently promoted to Director of Planning and Preservation at Pratt Center, Vicki now coordinates the team of planners who lead the Center’s community planning efforts, and also continues her work combining preservation and planning tools to benefit communities such as Cypress Hills and the Lower East Side. As an Adjunct Associate Professor at Pratt, Vicki teaches in the Historic Preservation graduate program and serves on its Curriculum Committee. Her courses include Documentation and Interpretation of the Built Environment and the Historic Preservation Studio. Vicki has a Master of Science degree in Historic Preservation from Columbia University, and a Bachelor of Art degree from Drew University.
