Support Bialystoker Landmarking Tonight!
Last-ditch efforts to landmark the Bialystoker Nursing Home continue tonight with an appeal to Community Board 3. Friends of the Bialystoker Home is mobilizing their base to attend the Landmarks subcommittee meeting in force to show support for preserving this Art Deco treasure at 228 East Broadway. The Lower East Side already sustained a huge blow with the closure of the 80-year-old hospice last year, and now the powers-that-be wish to add insult to injury by destroying the building for luxury living. Come to think of it, condos/upscale residential will probably be part of the equation with or without the protections.

In a press release, Friends of the Bialystoker Home noted:
We are urging everyone to come to the Community Board 3 meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20 at Campos Plaza Community Center, 611 East 13th Street (between Avenues B and C), where the Landmarks Committee will consider our request to support a resolution for the Landmarks Commission to calendar and designate the Bialystoker Home as a New York City Landmark. Sign-in at 6:20 to testify or just come with your friends to show support.
Just remember, karma is a bitch. Even the greediest get old and require care; you’ll get yours…
