NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation is asking the public to help nominate people, organizations and businesses for honor with a Village Award.

The society has honored more than 175 people, businesses and other entities that give Greenwich Village, the East Village and NoHo their character since 1991. Village Awards have gone to 26 restaurants, 20 specialty shops, 15 quality-of-life groups, 14 gardens and parks, one statue, and one television program – “Mad About You,” to be specific.

The wisteria on 10th, 11th and Stuyvesant streets is also a past recipient of a Village Award.

With another round of nominations, the society is asking the public to “to tell us about a house of worship, organization, business, restoration, individual—really anything or anyone that you feel makes a positive impact on life in the Village, East Village, or NoHo.”

But the society emphasizes that past nominees – which are listed on the group’s Web site – are not eligible. Nominees also must be located in Greenwich Village, the East Village or NoHo, and employees and trustees of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation are ineligible.

Online submissions will be accepted through the society’s Web site through April 10.

A committee of preservation society members, community leaders, business owners, and past award recipients will select the winners on June 17.
