The Architecture of South of Union Square: Virtual Photo Exhibit

We are very pleased to share with you our new online photo exhibit: The Architecture of South of Union Square. Consisting of images by renowned photographer Dylan Chandler, the exhibit shows the striking buildings, details, and streetscapes of this incredibly historic but endangered neighborhood where Greenwich Village meets the East Village, and for which Village Preservation is seeking to secure landmark protections.

Peruse the striking images, and read about the historic significance of each of these buildings, some nearly 200 years old, that have been home to great innovations, events, and turning points in artistic, civil rights, and commercial history.

This project was commissioned by the Preservation League of NYS in partnership with Village Preservation, thanks to a Regrowth and Capacity grant from the New York State Council on the Arts. Through that grant, the League is using artistic interventions to draw attention to its 2022-2023 Seven to Save endangered historic sites across the state, of which South of Union Square is one. 

You can help protect this architecturally rich but endangered historic area by sending a letter to city officials demanding landmark protections HERE. You can find out more about the campaign to protect this area HERE.
