Here's more information about tomorrow afternoon's PS 64 and CHARAS/El Bohio community center holiday card delivery to Mayor de Blasio ... via the EVG inbox...
City Councilwoman Rosie Mendez will be joined by colleagues, community residents and "3 Kings" to deliver frankincense, myrrh and gold (chocolate coins) with more than 1,000 holiday cards, petitions and a letter to Mayor de Blasio requesting one holiday gift — the return of the former PS 64 and CHARAS/El Bohio community center to the Lower East Side/East Village for community use.
Elected officials and residents of the Lower East Side are urging the Mayor to help return to the community the historic landmarked building that was saved by the community in the 1970s.
The building located at 605 E. Ninth St. was auctioned off and sold by Mayor Guiliani 15 years ago and has now been vacant for 13 years. This past Sept. 22, the Department of Buildings issued a Stop Work Order to halt construction that may have begun under a Partial Work Permit that was reportedly issued based on misinformation filed with DOB by developer Gregg Singer.
Here's a flyer with details about when all this is happening...
