Kim Maier

Kim Maier is the Executive Director of the Old Stone House & Washington Park - a community-based education, environmental and cultural organization that is the conservancy organization for Washington Park/JJ Byrne Playground in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The Old Stone House, originally the Vechte Cortelyou House, is a member of the Historic House Trust of New York City and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the culminating site of the largest battle of the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Brooklyn 1776. In partnership with the OSH board of directors, Kim has overseen $9.5 million in park renovations over the past five years; and is currently engaged in developing a family-focused exhibit for the OSH Gallery that explores how the Battle of Brooklyn and the occupation impacted the lives of 18th century Brooklynites. OSH produces or presents nearly 100 cultural events annually, ranging from outdoor festival programming to the monthly new music series, Musical Ecologies. Last year, OSH provided programs for 7,000 schoolchildren, hosted nearly 47,000 visitors and more than 500,000 park users.
