Squadron Joins Fight to Save St. Mark’s Books

The fight to save 35-year old East Village institution St. Marks Bookshop has been getting a lot of attention recently, including a big write-up in the New York Times and a MoveOn.org petition that has 30,000 signatures.

And now Brooklyn/Manhattan State Senator Daniel Squadron is getting in on the act, sending a letter to Cooper Union president Jamshed Bharucha and calling on him to reduce the bookstore’s rent.
