The fight to save Cafe Edison continues. Kathleen Vestuto, member of our Save Cafe Edison facebook group, reached out to Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer with great success.
Ms. Brewer has now written an eloquent letter to the Hotel Edison's owner, Gerald Barad, and General Manager, Richard Hotter, asking that they give a lease to the Cafe Edison.
Brewer writes that the closing of Cafe Edison "will cause the unnecessary loss of jobs for workers who are the most vulnerable in our economy. It would be a disgrace to lose this New York institution that inspired Neil Simon to write '45 Seconds from Broadway,' where August Wilson wrote several scripts on Cafe Edison napkins, and where Doug Henning and David Copperfield were regulars and I reiterate my request that you give a lease to the Cafe Edison to remain in its location in the Edison Hotel."
It's not over 'til it's over! This is not a funeral, it's a fight. So come out this weekend for Lunch Mobs, brings your protest signs, and bring the fight to Save Cafe Edison. It's not just about one place--this is a fight to save New York. Stop the vanishing.
