posted March 18, 2013

New York Greenhorns, this is important!

COME TO RALLY AT CITY HALL 3/19icon
We need you to join us on Tuesday, March 19 from 12pm to 1pm on the steps of City Hall, for a Rally on Behalf of New Amsterdam Market.

TELL THE COUNCIL TO VOTE “NO”
This is our last chance to stop the mall developer’s plans to destroy the iconic, city-owned Fulton Fish Market and replace it with a luxury high-rise complex whose details have not been disclosed to the public.

GET THE WORD OUT
If you can’t make it to the Rally tell as many people as you can! Email, Facebook, tweet and call everyone you know. Contact your local Council Member BEFORE WEDNESDAY 3/20 and tell them to vote “NO” on the Pier 17 ULURP. Instructions are here.

We propose the city-owned Fulton Fish Market Tin Building (1907) and New Market Building (1939)—two landmarks of national significance—be restored & dedicated as a new wholesale and retail market that will anchor the South Street Seaport as a premier destination for New Yorkers and visitors from around the world.
