Library and Archive Information

GVSHP’s non-circulating resource library contains fiction, non-fiction, and reports in the subject areas of Greenwich Village, Historic Preservation, and New York City History. The library also contains designation reports for Greenwich Village, Gansevoort Market, the Greenwich Village Historic District Extension, the Weehawken Street Historic District, and several individual landmarks.

The Greenwich Village Preservation Archive and Oral History Project contains a collection of interviews, clippings, and photographs that document fifty years of grassroots advocacy to “save the Village.” With one of the earliest organized community preservation efforts in the country, the Village serves as a model for the national historic preservation movement. The Archive provides a permanent home for the papers of Greenwich Village’s early preservation advocates, and informs the future of preservation in the Village by reminding us of past struggles. GVSHP recently cataloged all the images in the collection and created a database to aid in the search of collections. The database is currently only available by visiting GVSHP’s offices.

The library and archive are open to the public by appointment only. Fees apply for photocopies and printing.

For more information or to make an appointment, please contact Sam Moskowitz at (212) 475-9585 ext. 39 or e-mail.
