East Village

Village Preservation has worked to document, celebrate, and protect the special cultural heritage and built environment of the East Village, particularly it’s human scale, its working-class architecture, its immigrant history, and its tradition of trailblazing innovation. Village Preservation has helped secure expanded landmark protections in the neighborhood and contextual zoning to ensure new development is more in character with its surroundings and continues to advocate for more such protections.
