More Details on East Village Landmarking
Last week’s designation of the East Village/Lower East Side Historic District was an important victory for efforts to preserve and honor the history of this wonderful neighborhood. GVSHP sees this as what we hope will be the first, not the last, major step in extending historic district and landmark protections in the East Village.
You can read the designation report of the new district with historic information about the neighborhood as a whole and on each particular building and view a map of the designated district on our website HERE. You can read some more in depth historic detail about some particular buildings in the designated district which GVSHP had long fought to protect by clicking here: The Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Virgin Protection, Mezritch Synagogue, 101 Avenue A/Pyramid Club, and Community Synagogue.
You can also read some of the press coverage of the designation here: NY1, Crains NY, The Villager, The East Villager, The Village Voice, The Real Deal, AM New York, the Epoch Times, and City and State.
