2022 Annual Meeting and Awards To Be Held In Person on June 14 at Cooper Union’s Great Hall

We’re thrilled to announce that this year’s Village Preservation Annual Meeting and Awards will take place in person at Cooper Union’s Great Hall on June 14! We’re honored that Cooper Union has agreed to serve as co-host, and allow us to conduct this joyous annual event at this uniquely historic location where so much significant history has taken place over 160 years, from Lincoln’s momentous 1860 speech, to the founding of the NAACP, to women’s suffrage meetings, ACT UP rallies, and more. We will be following Cooper Union’s COVID protocols for large gatherings at the event.

We’ll be honoring favorite local small businesses, civic organizations, neighborhood leaders, community institutions, public spaces and renovations based upon YOUR nominations, as well as looking back on a year in the life of the organization. The awards will once again be emceed by award-winning poet and neighborhood resident Bob Holman.
