Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation (GVSHP) was founded in 1980 to preserve the architectural heritage and cultural history of Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo. GVSHP is a leader in protecting the sense of place and human scale that define the Village’s unique community. We have successfully advocated for the landmark designation of more than 1,250 buildings in our neighborhoods, and have helped secure zoning protections for nearly 100 blocks.
GVSHP offers a variety of tools to help you learn more about the history and culture of our neighborhoods, help in the fight to preserve Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo, and find out more about preservation in New York City and beyond.
