No stranger to these pages, Jeremiah of Jeremiah's Vanishing New York, has started an undertaking of large proportions - a socially driven website to help restore some sanity to the collective culture of what New York City is these days. This is a cause that is most definitely close to my heart, and possibly yours as well. And its EASY to support!
The website can be found at saveNYC.nyc.
There's a Facebook group.
And any related tweets can be tagged with what else? #savenyc.
All contributions are welcome!
Need further convincing? Check out Jeremiah's recent op-ed piece as run in the New York Daily News!
"Apparently, New York’s been waiting for you Starbucks, Olive Garden and Applebee’s. And for you Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors.
Small businesses in New York City have no rights. You’ve been here 50 years and provide an important service? Tough luck — your space now belongs to Dunkin’ Donuts. You own a beloved, fourth-generation, century-old business? Get out — your landlord’s putting in a combination Chuck E. Cheese and Juicy Couture."
