Here are your proposed East Village Historic Districts

On Tuesday night, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) revealed maps of their two proposed historic districts in the East Village. Off the Grid, the blog at the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, has more details here.

Anyway, too bad the district doesn't included the soon-to-be-demolished Mars Bar on Second Avenue and First Street... the proposal stops just short...



The next step: A public presentation and hearing before CB's Landmarks Subcommittee on May 12 at 6 p.m. at BRC, 30 Delancey St.

I'm sad that they seem to have cut my building off from the rest of the block, which is in the proposed district. My apartment has barely changed for the last 100+ years, but no one famous has ever lived there and nothing of note has ever happened their either. Is that a requirement?

Glad my building just barely made the cut, and thank god that horrible church on 2nd Ave between 2nd and 3rd St. isn't included in it. They need to burn that place down with their fucking horrible bell.

Speaking of historic EV, it was interesting to read this in yesterday's NY Daily News:
