Hey, I really love Greenwich Village, don't know much about it, but the folks at Protect the Village are trying to ensure that growth makes sense:
PROTECT THE VILLAGE HISTORIC DISTRICT (PVHD) was formed to advocate for the Greenwich Village community and its interests in the face of a massive and inappropriate development proposal from the Rudin Organization and St. Vincent's. PVHD seeks to significantly downsize and reshape this destructive proposal and to protect the Greenwich Village Historic District. We do not oppose the modernization of St. Vincent's. We do, however, consider it vital that any development respect our historic neighborhood, the City Landmark Preservation laws, and the values of our community. We support alternatives that accomplish these goals.
