Message

Don't deny landmark status to the incredible civil rights, cultural, and architectural history south of Union Square

Dear [Decision Maker],


I urge you to join a growing list of elected officials, scholars, civil rights groups, preservationists, and New Yorkers, including Speaker Corey Johnson, who support Village Preservation's proposal for landmark designation for the unprotected area of Greenwich Village and the East Village south of Union Square. The area is uniquely rich in intact 19th and early 20th century architecture, and contains an unrivaled set of sites connected to our city and our country's civil rights history, the women's suffrage movement, and great art, music and literature. Thousands of New Yorkers have also expressed their support for honoring and protecting this history, which has been threatened by increased development pressure in the area accelerated by the 14th Street Tech Hub and the city's policy of promoting high-rise commercial development here.


Sincerely,
[Your Name]
