Elaine Young, a stalwart of the JSBA, dear friend and Jane Street neighbor, died on Sunday, May 27th. Elaine was a dedicated community activist who cared deeply about the West Village and the Meatpacking District.
Elaine had a successful career in real estate balanced with many years of service to the community, including Community Board 2. Her longtime volunteer work with the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation (GVSHP) included the successful drive to create the landmarked Gansevoort Market Historic District. And as a co-founder of Save Gansevoort, she received a GVSHP Villager Award in 2016. Her enthusiasm, acumen, integrity and tireless efforts will be missed by all.
