Upcoming Events You Don’t Want To Miss

Village Preservation has some exciting and important events in May and June you’ll want to be sure to make. These include:

This Monday, May 15 at 6pm we’re holding a candidate forum for the newly-drawn City Council District 2, which now includes all of Greenwich Village east of 6th Avenue and north of Houston Street, all of the East Village and NoHo, and most of the east side between 14th and 30th Streets, First and Fifth Avenues. Incumbent Carlina Rivera, who is running for re-election, has declined to participate. The Primary election is June 27th, and early voting begins June 17th. 

Tuesday, May 30 at 6pm we’re hosting a candidate forum for the newly drawn City Council District 1, which now includes nearly all of Manhattan south of Houston Street. Incumbent seeking re-election Chris Marte will be there along with candidates Susan Lee, Helen Qiu, and Ursila Jung. The Primary election is June 27th, and early voting begins June 17th. 

On Wednesday, May 31 at 6pm we’ll be unveiling our latest historic plaque, marking the home of jazz pioneer Charles Mingus. We’ll be joined by some amazing musicians with Mingus connections who’ll perform, and speakers who knew the jazz great well. 

On Tuesday, June 13 at 6pm we’ll be celebrating six incredible awardees at our Village Awards and Annual Meeting. This heartwarming community celebration at Cooper Union’s Great Hall is free and open to the public, and recognizes organizations, people, and small businesses that have made extraordinary contributions to our communities, while celebrating a year of work by Village Preservation. A reception with refreshments will follow.
