P.S. 64 Rally

In response to developer Gregg Singer’s removal of the terra-cotta facade on P.S. 64 on Ninth Street in the East Village, the East Village Community Coalition is holding a rally, in about a half an hour, to express its ire at the developer’s actions. This has been a long, convoluted battle between the two camps. Recently in The Villager, Community Board 3 chair David McWater questioned Mr. Singer’s motives for removing the facade: “Why? Just to be spiteful?” Before adding, “Just childish.”

RALLY TO STOP THE DESTRUCTION OF P.S. 64! Monday, July 31, Noon, 10 St. at Ave. B (next to the school) We need YOU to tell the owner of P.S. 64 (formerly CHARAS) that he must not continue to destroy a city landmark! Please join US Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, NYC Councilmember Rosie Mendez, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, NYS Senator Martin Connor, NYS Assemblymember Sylvia Friedman, and Community Board 3 Chair Dave McWater. Show your support!
