April Is Greenwich Village Historic District Month!

April is when we celebrate the designation of the Greenwich Village Historic District, landmarked in April 1969, and protecting more than 2,200 buildings and helping to preserve one of the most historically significant urban neighborhoods in the world. Village Preservation was founded in 1980 to help protect the Greenwich Village Historic District (we’ve since expanded our mission to include all of Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo), and the district — still one of NYC’s oldest and largest — remains near and dear to our heart and mission.

We’re celebrating all month long with posts on our blog that celebrate the neighborhood’s special history and programs that focus on the Greenwich Village Historic District’s unique places and architecture.

Want to learn more about the Greenwich Village Historic District? Check out our map with dozens of tours containing more than 1,000 historically significant sites and “then and now” photos of the district from when it was designated and today. Or go to our Greenwich Village Historic District advocacy page to learn more about the ongoing work we are doing to preserve and protect this incredibly special place.
