On this day in 1969, the Greenwich Village Historic District is designated, helping to preserve and protect one of New York's oldest, largest, and most beloved landmarked neighborhoods. It resulted from the hard work of countless activists including Jane Jacobs, protecting over 2,000 buildings covering dozens of blocks from University Place to Washington Street. GVSHP was founded in 1980, and our mission has been to protect that district and extend landmark protections to additional areas of Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo. So far, we have helped get more than ten additional historic districts and district extensions designated and dozens of individual landmarks, protecting more than 1,250 additional buildings.
