Dear friend,


As 2016 gets underway, preservation in our city and our neighborhoods is under attack like never before.

Help #SaveItNow –

Here's what we're facing:

  •  A citywide rezoning plan that would gut height limits in residential neighborhoods we fought years to secure, which are essential to keeping new development in scale with their surroundings. The Far West Village and East Village would be particularly hard hit. 
  • A plan to sell “air rights’ from the Hudson River Park and massively upzone a site at Houston and West Street to allow 5-building, 2 million sq. ft complex of apartments, hotels, events space, and stores, with little or no mitigation or protection for nearby residential neighborhoods.

Decisions will be made in the coming months on these and many other proposals that will shape our neighborhoods forever, and determine the direction of planning and preservation in our city for years to come.

We need your help more than ever to respond to these threats and ensure our neighborhood is protected.

Latest Landmarks Applications Available

GVSHP provides an ongoing record of all applications for changes to landmarked properties in our neighborhoods (Greenwich Village, NoHo, Gansevoort Market, the South Village, and the East Village) that require a public hearing before they can be approved. These proposals range from minor alterations to large additions, demolition, and new construction on landmarked sites.

Find out about the application, when the Community Board and NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission public hearings will take place, and how you can weigh in before decisions are made. You can also sign up for alerts to be notified of changes in the status of the application.
