South Village neighbors David Chester and Harry Pincus testified on Tuesday, February 11th at the City Council public hearing on Hudson Square rezoning plan. Chester underscored the need for affordable housing in our neighborhood, while Pincus noted that European cities have figured out how to preserve their civic treasures, why not get it right in New York’s South Village?
