143 East 13th Street’s Incredible History Sparks Landmarking Proposal
GVSHP has researched and documented the history of every single building in the East Village as part of our ongoing effort to promote preservation in this neighborhood. One outstanding building is the pre-law tenement at 143 East 13th Street, which was built in 1863 at the height of the Civil War. Few structures of its kind anywhere in New York City maintain the incredible level of intact original detail as 143 East 13th Street.
Working closely with the owner of the building, GVSHP, along with allied community and preservation groups, has asked the Landmarks Preservation Commission to consider landmarking this incredible structure as it is about to turn 150 years old — read the nomination and find out more about its history HERE.
