Landmark protections are needed for Greenwich Village and the East Village South of Union Square more than ever
Dear [Decision Maker],
With the filing of demolition permits for 64 University Place, It's more critical than ever that the city extend landmark designation to this area so rich in civil rights and cultural history proposed by Village Preservation, and that you support doing so. We have lost too much of this area's rich history and wonderful architecture already. I urge you not to allow this destruction to continue. A growing list of elected officials, scholars, civil rights groups, preservationists, and New Yorkers, including Speaker Corey Johnson and Borough President Gale Brewer 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] [Your Address]
