As part of our East Village preservation efforts, GVSHP is conducting research on the history of every building in the East Village. This research has shown wonderful patterns exemplified by buildings like Webster Hall, reflecting the East Village’s intersection of immigrant history, the labor movement, radical politics, sexual liberation, and artistic innovation.
