This summer I am interning at AKRF, Inc. AKRF is a leading consulting firm in New York City, specializing in environmental, planning and engineering. So far this summer, I have been assisting with historic research for the State Historic Preservation Office. I have been writing historic contexts for waterfront neighborhoods that were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Later this summer, I will be helping my coworkers with field work, looking for buildings of architectural or historical significance throughout each neighborhood.
I have also been assisting with cultural resource work, helping to take photos for a number of projects as part of the NYC government ‘City Environmental Quality Review’ (CEQR) Historic and Cultural Resources Chapters’. It has been such a great learning experience working at AKRF and look forward to the remainder of my summer here!
