Hey New Yorkers. You know how everything good in New York seems to keep closing down and being replaced by chain stores and banks? It fucking sucks, and we’ve all started thinking it’s inevitable. It’s not inevitable....
...and it's not just "because people are shopping on the internet". It's happening because landlords are allowed to triple the rent on that beloved bar/restaurant/shop/theater you love.
When they can't pay we're left with a vacant storefront (take a look at the West Village right now, it's horrifying) or another Capital One branch that nobody wants or needs. Then we talk about how "New York is dying". Well here's something you can DO NOW:
The city council is going to vote early next week on the Small Business Survival Act (#SBJSA). It would give small commercial tenants some basic rights to not have their rents jacked up arbitrarily.
If you can set aside literally five minutes today to make some noise, maybe this thing can get passed, and maybe we can stop seeing the city turn to corporate shit in front of our eyes.
Everything you need is right here

(It’s great people are retweeting this — please also ACT on it or it stays in this echo chamber and nothing changes. Again, that link above has everything you need to auto-generate letters to the City Council 🙏)
