Since 2009, the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation (GVSHP) has taken to the task of updating its website with information on every application filed for changes, or certificates of appropriateness, to landmarked properties within the neighborhood that require a public hearing. The society has now launched an interactive mapping tool that makes it much easier to keep track of all of the proposed changes, public hearings, and application statuses regarding landmarks throughout Greenwich Village.

The webpage is quite simple to navigate, using Google Maps as the foundation and allowing users to filter their search by historic districts, interior landmarks, individual landmarks, or by address of applications.

According to the current map, there are more than 595 addresses throughout Greenwich Village where applications have been filed for landmarked properties. There are 17 historic districts where changes are sought after, 93 individual landmarks with applications, and just seven interior landmarks with applications on file for major changes.
