Preservation issues in our historic district

Our neighborhood is part of the Greenwich Village Historic District, established 50 years ago  to provide guidelines for building renovation and new builds. A leading advocate, Village Preservation, frequently testifies before NYC's Landmarks Preservation Commission, the body that reviews building applications. Village Preservation also offers cultural programming and archival resources. ​

Our Community Board 2 (CB2) holds monthly meetings about many local issues. A CB2 hearing is the first step for any club or restaurant applying for a new or renewing liquor or beer/wine license. CB2 sends its recommendation to the State Liquor Authority (SLA), which grants or denies the application, commonly known as an "SLA app."

CB2 hearings are the neighborhood's chance to negotiate with applicants about issues that can impact our quality of life: late-night hours, rooftop dining, DJs, rope lines, promoted events, and music volume. The monthly calendar of all committee meetings is updated on CB2's website. The co-chairs of CB2's  SLA Committee are Robert Ely  and Cormac Flynn.  SLA Applicants are encouraged to meet with community members before a hearing date. Contact us to join the mailing list of residents who attend these meetings.

​If you are affected by late-night activity of any kind, it is important to document the issue by calling 311, or going online to 311

NYPD neighborhood outreach —  issues with clubs and restaurants — historic preservation

A special unit of the NY Police Department

— Neighborhood Coordination Officers — 

includes four officers for Jane Street. You can contact them directly for any kind of (non-emergency) issue.

New NCOs for Sector D (west of Hudson) are Officers Christopher Bellore and Peter Plessa Thanks so much to outgoing NCO Officers Kelvin Ozuna and Gustavo Montesdeoca (pictured, right) for all their great work representing our community.

Covering Sector B (east of Hudson) are Officers Deniz Saglam (pictured, right)  and Maureen Carey (not pictured)

Late-night noise from a local club or restaurant? Call 311 or go online to 311 to report it. Just as important, you can help the JSBA monitor local applications for liquor licenses by sending emails or attending meetings of our Community Board 2, which hears license applications.

Neighborhood Coordination Officers (NCOs) reach out to residents and business owners while on patrol, attend community meetings, and visit schools and houses of worship.  As adjuncts to the detective squads, NCOs can quickly respond to developing incidents. The NYPD's 6th precinct has created four sectors for this program, and Jane Street straddles two of them: Sector D (west of Hudson) and Sector B (east of Hudson). NCOs also participate in NYPD's local Build the Block meetings, a chance to meet with NYPD officers and other city departments to discuss local issues. @JSBANYC will tweet about upcoming meetings, which are also announced via this NYPD site.
