Russian Orthodox Cathedral – 59 E 2nd Street
PLEASE ATTEND AND TESTIFY IN SUPPORT OF LANDMARK DESIGNATION FOR THIS HISTORIC STRUCTURE!
In 2008 EVCC became aware of plans to erect an eight-story condo tower atop the Russian Orthodox Cathedral at 59 E 2nd Street in our neighborhood. Thankfully that threat is gone, due in large part to the rezoning of the East Village which prohibits such construction. But, the 150-year-old building remains vulnerable – THIS IS WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT AT THE LANDMARKS PRESERVATION COMMITTEE (LPC) MEETING!
On Tuesday, March 23 the LPC will hold a hearing on a proposal to landmark the structure. EVCC, along with the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, urged this designation in a letterto the LPC in 2008.
Date: Tuesday, March 23
Time: 10:50 a.m.
Location: LPC Hearing Room, Municipal Building, One Centre Street (at Chambers), 9th Floor. Bring Photo ID to enter the building.
