Reforming the Landmarking Process
Village Preservation advocates for changes and improvements to the landmarking system to better protect historic resources and allow New Yorkers to more fully participate in the process.
Greenwich Village Historic District
Village Preservation was founded in 1980, in part, to be a steward for the Greenwich Village Historic District. Designated in 1969, it is one of our city’s oldest and largest historic districts. Its continuing preservation and oversight remains at the core of our mission.
Village Preservation has been a leader in opposing the effort to remove the current State cap on the size of residential buildings in New York City, and to eliminate loopholes and other abuses of zoning regulations which produce taller and larger buildings than current rules were intended to allow.
Promoting Diversity and Civil Rights History
Village Preservation has long made a priority of elevating, preserving, and celebrating the histories and contributions of underrepresented groups in our neighborhoods including African Americans, LGBTQ people, women, immigrants, the Latinx community, and Asian Americans.
Village Preservation has won landmark designation for over 1,250 buildings and zoning protections for nearly 100 blocks of Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo.
