Message

Given their incredible history & architecture it's unfathomable that the area south of Union Sq. lacks landmark protections

Dear [Decision Maker],

I fully support the proposal by Village Preservation for historic district/landmark protections for the area of Greenwich Village and the East Village south of Union Square, and I strongly urge you to as well. The area's wonderful architecture and incredibly rich history has led to support for this proposal from not only historic preservationists and neighborhood groups, but civil rights groups like the NAACP and the National LGBTQ Task Force, prominent businesses, scholars, writers, and academics, and the families and estates of some of the many important artists and historic figures connected to the area. Thousands of New Yorkers have also written letters showing their support for honoring and protecting this history, which have 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]
