Rally Against New Development of Two Bridges

October 14, 2018 3:30pm

Residents, business owners, and supporters from across the city will gather in a final stand against the illegal four luxury towers that are currently proposed for the Two Bridges neighborhood in the Lower East Side

The Lower East Side Organized Neighbors (LESON), a group of community members and concerned individuals, have built a thorough and vetted legal strategy, with the intention of suing the City for breaking the law. To date, this is the only strategy to fully stop the monstrous developments. This press conference highlights the voices of parents, small business owners, seniors, and environmentalists who are united in demanding that the zoning resolution be enforced, so that these destructive towers will be denied the required permits. Location: In front of 275 Cherry St (at Rutgers St) in Manhattan

Date: Sunday October 14, 2018 at 3:30 p.m.
