Greenwich Village’s historic district could get bigger

The city’s Landmarks Preservation voted Tuesday to look into a proposal that would landmark a huge part of southern Greenwich Village.

The public will have a chance to chime in on Nov. 29 about the plan that will provide landmark status to the area that covers 157 buildings south of Houston Street, west of Sixth Avenue, east of Thompson Street and north of Watts Street.

If approved, the buildings, the majority of which were built before World War II, would have protections that prohibit changes to buildings without city approval.

The LPC already landmarked two other sections of the southern Village in 2010 and 2013.
