The Day | Enough is Enough

GiantMichelle Rick

Good morning, East Village.

We begin today with an updated on the status of 35 Cooper Square, which has been making headlines at the Local since the announcement that the landmark building would be torn down, up to the news that developer Arun Bhatia would be holding a meeting to discuss the fate of the building. EV Grieve reports that the meeting will take place today, but is not open to the public or the press. Those who will make an appearance include president emeritus of the Municipal Arts Society Kent Barwick, Kerri Culhane, and Andrew Bernan, the executive director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation.

EV Grieve also shared a photo taken at last night’s Community Board 3 meeting, featuring locals holding signs reading “enough is enough” when discussing Percy’s Tavern on 13th Street and Avenue A setting up sidewalk tables outside the restaurant.

We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s hot weather and sunshine. Today’s forecast indicates rain and thunder, with a high of 59 degrees. Have a good one, EV.
