As I wrote in the Bowery Boogie comments section regarding the Epstein's expansion:

The Community Board meeting is Monday, June 16th at 6:30PM. The location is 59 East 4th Street (between 2nd Ave & Bowery). Please, PLEASE! Attend the meeting and voice your concern over this! This CANNOT happen!

Epstein's has been a horrible neighbor ever since they moved in. I personally have had to call 311 and the bar itself many times over the last ten years to ask that they PLEASE keep the (f**KING) music and screaming down.
