P.J. Clarke's Has Launched a Petition Against Brookfield

On top of the $40 million lawsuit it filed against Brookfield last month, the Battery Park City P.J. Clarke's is now taking to the streets — or at least the Internet — to rally neighbors against its landlord Brookfield Properties. The restaurant claims Brookfield has led a "coordinated effort" to force it out of its location, so it can fill the space with a "higher-end tenant at higher rental rates" (which some say might be Keith McNally's Pastis).

"P.J. Clarke's is not going to take this lying down," says to one representative. It has launched an online petition to garner local support, and is handing out kitschy postcards like these:

So far, however, a only two people have signed the petition.
