Rally to Save the South Village Sunday, April 10 at 1pm
GVSHP and a broad array of community and preservation groups will be holding a rally and press conference on Sunday, April 10 at 1pm near the Children’s Aid Society, Sullivan Street between Bleecker and West 3rd Streets, to call upon the City to landmark the remaining two-thirds of the proposed South Village Historic District as soon as possible. PLEASE COME, and bring signs, friends and neighbors! A flyer with details which you can distribute is HERE. If your group would like to co-sponsor, please contact us, and please spread the word!
GVSHP has just learned that yet another building in the proposed South Village Historic District, 83 Thompson/182 Spring Street is slated for demolition and new development. The Children’s Aid Society has also begun to solicit bids for its multi-building site on Sullivan Street touting the unused development rights which would allow a MUCH larger, taller structure on the site. GVSHP has recently written to the City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission urging them to move ahead right away with promised consideration of landmark designation of this vulnerable, historic area right away (read the letter HERE).
