South Village

Village Preservation has been the leader in documenting, celebrating, and advocating for the preservation of the South Village, the once-predominantly immigrant section of Greenwich Village south of Washington Square and West 4th Street, between LaGuardia Place and Seventh Avenue South. In 2006 Village Preservation submitted a proposal for landmark designation of the entire area, based upon the areas rich history in connection to immigrants, countercultural movements, and its early LGBT and African-American communities. This resulted in three historic district designations (the Greenwich Village Historic District Extension II, the South Village Historic District, and the Sullivan Thompson Historic District) and four individual landmark designations, protecting about 650 buildings and more than thirty blocks.
