Harlem revitalization brings IFDA award
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, May 27, 2002
The Big Apple Award was presented by the New York chapter of the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA) to the Abyssinian Development Corp. for its efforts to revitalize the rich architectural heritage of the Harlem neighborhood in New York.
The Big Apple award is presented biannually to an organization or company that has contributed substantially to improving aspects of life in New York, particularly from an architectural or design point of view.
IFDA members toured the historic restored Harlem area on the evening of the presentation earlier this month and later had a buffet sampler of soul food. Karen Phillips, executive director of the Abyssinian Development Corp. accepted the award.
