ERFA SPECIAL TOWN HALL @ Japan Society on February 8th

By Team ERFA,


Thursday, February 8, 2018 7-8:30 pm

This neighborhood is still threatened by the very real possibility of a supertall building being built on 58th Street DESPITE our win to put in place new rezoning law in our neighborhood.

Gamma Real Estate has appealed to the City’s Board of Standards and Appeals to be allowed to build their mega tower on the 58th Street site.
We’re fighting back.  Join us.

Come to a special Town Hall to hear from our team about our strategy and what’s next.  We will be joined by elected officials.
Show that this is important to you.
We need your continued citizen activism and support. Come hear what YOU can do.

Special Town Hall — Sept 19th @ 8 a.m.

ERFA is holding a special Town Hall on Tuesday, September 19th at 8 a.m. @ Morso, 420 East 59th Street

Join us on Tuesday next week to hear an update on our community rezoning application. Please note the date of this meeting as it falls on a Tuesday, not our regular day of the week for meetings.

We have invited our four co-applicant elected officials and their representatives to join us.

Discussions with the Department of City Planning have continued since our last Town Hall.  Come hear the results of those negotiations. ERFA is committed to transparency with its community around the process and status of our application to rezone and protect this community.

Please join us on Thursday this week to hear an update on our community rezoning application.

Co-applicant Gale Brewer, Manhattan Borough President, and representatives from co-applicants Dan Garodnick, Ben Kallos, and Liz Krueger will be in attendance.

We know many of you are deeply concerned about the active construction site on east 58th Street. For those of you most affected by the construction, we’ll tell you what you can do if you are concerned about public safety issues or to fight against the after hours variances that the Department of Buildings has been granting.  In the meantime, for those affected, call 311 or log your complaint here.
