What is it about the Village, the East Village, and NoHo that attracts people from all over the world? Is it the inherent charm of the beautiful architecture? Is it the neighborhood cafes and restaurants that are so inviting? Is it the theater, dance, and arts that entice? Could it be the unconventional streets, where the grid and numbered streets and avenues fall away?
You can still hear jazz coming out of the windows and doors of clubs, catch a game of chess, see an art film, get a cheap haircut, find the best pizza in New York, or get truly lost in the big city. Indeed, there may be more culture per square foot here than any other place on earth. Our neighborhoods are simply like no others, full of some of the most varied history and beautiful architectural styles.
Village Preservation is here to ensure that our neighborhoods continue to be these places of wonder, and that even when you're lost, you can still see the sky. That is our mission.
