Village Preservation’s Historic Plaque Program

Historic plaques can be a wonderful way to educate the public about the remarkable history of our neighborhoods, and the incredible events, people, and movements connected to sites all around us.

Explore our map to see the locations and information for all the historic plaques installed to date.

Be on the lookout for future announcements regarding our historic plaque program throughout Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo.
