Last Tuesday, we held a rally/demonstration at Sutton Square calling on the City to hurry along approval of our rezoning plan and help us protect the East River Fifties community (the area between 52nd and 59th Streets, east of First Avenue) from megatowers forever.
ERFA’s Director of Communications Lisa Mercurio emceed the event. Councilmember Ben Kallos, spoke to the crowd, as did representatives from Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer’s office and Councilmember Dan Garodnick. Lynn Ellsworth, Co-Founder of New Yorkers for a Human-Scale City also addressed the community.
