Greenwich Village Historic District

Tell the Mayor and LPC to support landmarking Julius’ Bar Building

Tell the Mayor and LPC chair to support landmark designation for Julius’ Bar Building and for other unprotected sites in our neighborhoods that played historic roles in the struggle for civil rights and social justice.

Village Preservation was founded in 1980, in part, to be a steward for the Greenwich Village Historic District. Designated (landmarked) in 1969, at over 2,200 buildings and 100 blocks it’s one of our city’s oldest and largest historic districts, covering much but not all of Greenwich Village between University Place and Washington Street, 13th Street and West 4th Street/St. Luke’s Place. Its continuing preservation and oversight remains at the core of our mission.

We have created a variety of resources to highlight and celebrate its rich history and architecture, including a map with 1969/2019 images of every building on the district and dozens of tours covering about a thousand sites of special interest. In 2019 we spearheaded a celebration of the district’s 50th anniversary. Every day we monitor every one of the buildings in the district for applications to make changes to the exteriors and review and share with the public each one that requires landmarks public review.
