Senior Practitioner Fellow, Winter/Spring 2009
Carol was the principal researcher for a study to identify and advance planning tools to help protect the integrity of New York’s older residential neighborhoods while facilitating appropriate development. To launch the project, Carol took leave from her position at New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development where she has served as Assistant Commissioner since 2002. During a professional career that spans over three decades in New York City, she has held leadership roles in both the non-profit and governmental sectors. Her expertise is in planning, land use, and preservation issues. Carol is an Adjunct Associate Professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation where she is affiliated with the Historic Preservation and Urban Planning programs. She has also taught at New York University and Pratt Institute.
"The Senior Practitioner Fellowship presents an excellent opportunity to carry out an independent study with the support of a venerable organization that has, through its impartial research and nonpartisan advocacy, influenced public policy in New York City for over 70 years."
