In 1969, Greenwich Village preservationists, activists, and neighbors celebrated the victory of the designation of the Greenwich Village Historic District. Travel back in time with our panelists to explore preservation battles and changes in Greenwich Village and beyond before the designation of the district. This will be an in-depth look at the climate and work that set the stage for the Greenwich Village Historic District. What did the activism that led up to the designation look like?

Panelists include:

  • Andrew Berman, Executive Director of Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation
  • Anthony Wood, New York Preservation Archive Project
  • Professor Francis Morrone, Architectural Historian

Co-sponsored by the New York Preservation Archive Project and the Church of Saint John’s in the Village
