Ed Jaworski has been a “civic activist” ever since he and his wife purchased a home in their southern Brooklyn community 40 years ago. His dream was to coach high school basketball upon retiring as a college administrator. That “dream” lasted three seasons, till a growing number of McMansions invaded the community. Now, instead of being consumed by sports’ competition, he is consumed with dealing with issues, politicians, government agencies, and a massive number of related emails. He has helped start four civic groups, serves as president of the Madison-Marine-Homecrest Civic Association, is a director of the Four Borough Neighborhood Preservation Alliance, and has been attempting to develop civic alliances in Brooklyn (plus stay in contact with the Queens Civic Congress).
Kelly Carroll is the Director of Advocacy and Community Outreach at the Historic Districts Council. HDC is the citywide advocate for historic neighborhoods, working with over 500 community based groups in all five boroughs. Kelly has a master’s of science in historic preservation from Columbia University and has been involved with HDC since 2011, and has had a fascination with neighborhoods, cities, and architecture since she was a child.
