February 14th, 2008 · No Comments

It looks like the petition that is a letter to Mayor Micheal Bloomberg about 475 Kent is drawing from a wide base of support. As of 8:00 AM today, there were 2,359 signatures. The petition only went up online on Monday. It says, in part, “in the spirit of the cultural tradition that has long prevailed in this great city, I urge you to do everything you can to help those who work and live at 475 Kent Avenue to return to their studios immediately and to foster our common creative capital.” The petition can be read and signed by clicking here. The 475 Kent Blog, meanwhile, is here.
