Drying of NYC: Protesters Decry Cooper Square Hotel Bars!

New, 3 comments

As reported in EaterWire at the end of the day yesterday, last night saw assorted residents and supporters of East 5th Street in the East Village gather to have their say about developer Peck/Moss's rather aggressive bar and nightlife plans for the forthcoming Cooper Square Hotel on The Bowery. Though the liquor license application indeed was withdrawn—it can be heard next month, if Peck/Moss thinks the climate has improved since the debacle that was their first appearance back in July—the protest went on. As such, the Eater Video Ops team was on the scene to chronicle the action, as seen above—do let us know which oldskool protest chant you find most effective. And see also more on last night's protest over at Curbed.
