SOHO HOUSE TRIES A 3RD TIME
FOR A LIQUOR LICENSE, 2  CLICKS
COULD HELP STOP THEM
Despite overwhelming community opposition and denial  by Community Board 3, Soho House is heading to The NY State Liquor Authority on Thursday, August 8th, hoping to circumvent the will of the people.

Soho House with its high-powered legal team, will appear before the NY  SLA Administrative Law Judge to try and prove public benefit, which is required by law when 3 or more fully licensed establishments exist within 500 ft of a proposed site. Soho House will argue that  a club on-premise liquor license to include 3 floors and an unenclosed rooftop, dj/live music, 250-450 person occupancy, and closing hours of 2am - 4am, will not negatively effect or compound existing conditions.

Members from the LES Dwellers will stand before the same judge to prove otherwise, arguing that any additional late-night  fully licensed establishments will further degrade quality of life of residents by increasing noise, pedestrian and vehicular congestion and pollution load.

Today, we are asking you to please stand with us, and help us make our case to The New York State Liquor Authority.
All that is required of you, is 2 Clicks, 10 minutes, and a belief that people can change things for the better for themselves, their families, and their neighbors.


Why Sending A Letter Is So Important:  Individual letters count toward community opposition attendance at The NY SLA 500 ft Hearing, and are more impactful than a petition signature.

By doing both, you are sending a powerful message that enough is enough!

The LES Dwellers will fight the good fight on August 8th for the community we love and believe in, please join us and be counted by sending in your letter and signing the on-line petition TODAY! Please spread the word!


Deadline Wednesday, August 7th at 5pm for petition signatures and letters.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
AS WE FIGHT FOR CHANGE, THE FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT FOR RESIDENTS
We started as a few residents who had enough, unwilling to accept living in degraded conditions and being ignored. We decided to stand up, speak out and demand change.

From a few concerned residents, we grew to an organization of many concerned residents. We have volunteered countless hours and personal resources to help effect change and make a difference in the lives of residents living on the Lower East Side. We are motivated by the understanding that everyone is
entitled to live in safe, healthy, sanitary, and respectful communities with economic and retail diversity.

We have had some success but there is a lot more for us to do, so we will continue to fight hard for the neighborhood we love, the community we believe in, and the place we call home. We will continue fighting until we live in the neighborhood we are entitled to and deserve.

Please continue to stand with us as we change our neighborhood from a lawless, anything-goes entertainment zone into a livable community where businesses are not in direct conflict with a resident's quality of life. We believe that when there is an adequate system of checks and balances in place, along with proper foresight and responsible city planning residents and businesses can harmoniously co-exist, resulting in resilient communities where a fair balance is struck between preservation and development,  and community need and growth; and where economic and cultural diversity exists.


All the success we have had is because we are doing this as a community. By refusing to accept our conditions as a fait accompli and pushing back, positive change is afoot.  Your support is immeasurable, so keep fighting alongside us and let's keep changing things for the better for our community.

--LES Dwellers
