Helping Save Jerry

From the EVG inbox… several people here and on Facebook asked if there was a way to help out Jerry Delakas, who the city locked out of the Astor Place newsstand that he has operated the past 26 years… several residents have come together to set up the following...

There is now a contribution box at The New York Copy Center at 34 E. Seventh St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. (cash only, no checks). All proceeds will be given to Jerry.

Please use PAYPAL to send money to this email.

And there's another rally today from 4:30-6 p.m. at Jerry's shuttered newsstand outside the downtown 6 at Astor Place.

You can find more information at the "Save Jerry's Newsstand" Facebook page

He was open sporadically at best and operated illegally since 1987. I live across the street and am not losing sleep over this. He did not play by the rules and had a nice run. Would be nice to find a newsstand open at 7 AM on a Sunday, and that was not Jerry.
