Thanks Patti, for responding. If you are worried about the building being leveled, you can put your mind at rest – it’s landmarked and can’t be torn down. As for management efforts to save and restore the building there aren’t any. Instead they are gutting the rooms. We are worried about who the rightful tenants are going to turn out to be – obviously not the more than 30 who are being evicted and as for the artist-in- residence program, there are already plenty of those here.
We are glad that you aren’t taking compensation but you should not let the Chetrits use you for propaganda purposes.
If you want to give a concert for us great, but chose a neutral venue, one where Chetrit will not be sponsoring you.
We still think you should cancel your event in the ballroom.
