Stop the Noise on Orchard Street

These “Stop the Noise” fliers were taped to the doorway of 181 East Houston as a call to arms against more liquor licenses on Orchard Street.  It reads as follows:

“Under the 500 Foot Law and the CB3 Resolution District rule, we already exceed the allowable number of liquor licenses.  AND our tiny block houses one of downtown Manhattan’s largest hotels [Thompson LES].  We have more than our share of loud music, honking horns, overflowing sidewalks, and drunks yelling on the street in the middle of the night.

The SLA meets on Wednesday, September 23 to discuss our block.  Send Chariman Rosen a message that as a resident you cannot take any more noise.  Ask the SLA to refuse any new liquor licenses on Orchard Street between Houston and Stanton.”

Or on all of Orchard and Ludlow for that matter.
