Retail Diversity

A diversity of local independent retail shops and services is an essential part of life in the East Village. The EVCC continues to press for any and all measures to support the small businesses that keep our neighborhood livable and attractive.



East Village / Lower East Side Rezoning

What do you see when you look uptown or downtown from the East Village? Towers. The zoning we fight for protects our walkable, tree-lined streets, one of the main reasons people love living here.



The EVCC works alongside our coalition partners to expand Historic Districts and Individual Landmarks protections in our community. Each of our neighborhood’s historic buildings has a story to tell.
