The War Over Greenwich Village

New, 32 comments

Team Preservation has enlisted a high-profile supporter in Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff, who comes out against the St. Vincent's/Rudin plan for Greenwich Village: "Sadly, the hospital’s application reflects the pernicious but prevalent notion that any single building that is not a major historical landmark — or stands outside the historical mainstream — is unworthy of our protection. Pursue that logic to its conclusion, and you replace genuine urban history with a watered-down substitute. It’s historical censorship." [NYT; previously]
