Wall Street Journal Piece on Little Syria (Jennifer Weiss)
This morning the Wall Street Journal has a wonderful print and video piece about our campaign to protect the remaining complex of three historic buildings on Washington Street in Little Syria.
This is indeed an urgent situation, and we would ask that people contact the Landmarks Preservation Commission (Chairman Robert Tierney) and Mayor Bloomberg, asking them to hold a simple hearing. No other major ethnic neighborhood has been devastated like Little Syria, and our architectural report this summer should meet the threshold for a hearing.
We are prepared to give tours of Washington Street to any media outlets (local, national, and international), and we encourage you to contact Carl and myself with any ideas that you have. Please call Todd Fine at 857-234-0920 for media inquiries.
