ERFA’s reply to the New York Post’s piece.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEW YORK POST
To the Editor:
Regarding “The Hypocrites of Sutton Place,” an out of scale, outsized project that would cast a shadow on the entire community and the city itself, if allowed to go through, is opposed by a caring and correct thinking group of neighbors and elected officials including Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, State Senator Liz Krueger, and New York City Council Members Dan Garodnick and Ben Kallos. The overwhelming neighborhood opposition to this massive blight comes not from the residents of one building, but from thousands of residents of buildings small and large, and our elected representatives who know a disaster is coming when they see one.
President, East River Fifties Alliance
TOWN HALL MEETING RESCHEDULED
NEW DATE: Thursday, May 4, 2017 8:00 a.m.
We have to reschedule the Town Hall meeting originally scheduled for this Thursday. Why are we rescheduling?
This week, we are meeting with our co-applicants: Borough President Gale A. Brewer, Councilmembers Dan Garodnick and Ben Kallos, and State Senator Liz Krueger.
Next week, we will be able to share with you the results of that meeting and report on the next steps to get our application certified and finally into the public process.
We are still in this fight and are asking for the same considerations for rezoning as have been afforded other neighborhoods by asking the City to move our application through the process.
We regret any inconvenience this rescheduling may cause, but hope you can join us on May 4th.
Come to ERFA’s spring Town Hall at 8 a.m. April 27th at Morso, 420 East 59th Street. Get an update on the rezoning application filed by this community and its elected officials. We will talk about the efforts to get the application certified by City Planning and into the public process.
