NEW YORK CITY: Today, more than ever, the soul of New York is getting mugged by rising rents, suburbanization, rampant development, and a flood of chain businesses. Hyper-gentrification is destroying the cultural fabric of New York and City Hall is doing nothing to stop it. #SAVENYC (SaveNYC.Nyc) is a call to action that gathers the voices of everyday New Yorkers, celebrities, small businesspeople, tourists —all who care about protecting the cultural fabric of the city — to send a strong message to City Hall: Save New York! Cultivated by former mayor Bloomberg, hyper-gentrification in New York was implemented via strategically planned mass rezonings, eminent domain, and billions in tax breaks to large corporations. This has led to the ongoing eviction of countless small businesses, destroying the fabric of our streets and putting the city’s soul on life support. To save it, we need politicians, activists, and citizens to get tough and protect the city’s cultural heritage so we don’t lose anymore like CBGB’s, Cafe Edison, Colony Records, Florent, Lenox Lounge, 5Pointz, and many, many others. With the #SaveNYC campaign asks readers to submit first-person video testimonials and stories to tell New York and its leaders why the cultural heritage of the city matters, and why it needs protecting–before it’s too late. Interested media who would like to learn more about #SaveNYC please contact WORKHOUSE, CEO Adam Nelson via firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone +1 212. 645. 8006
