#SaveNYC is campaign started by Jeremiah Moss of the popular NYC historical blog Vanishing New York that seeks to protect and preserve the diversity and uniqueness of the urban fabric in New York City.
As our vibrant streetscapes and neighborhoods are turned into bland, suburban-style shopping malls, filled with chain stores and glossy luxury retail, #SaveNYC is fighting for small businesses and cultural institutions to remain in place. Our mission is to bring attention to the plight of Mom and Pop, and to lobby state and city government to implement significant and powerful protections for small businesses and cultural institutions across the five boroughs of New York City.
In this recent spot from WNYC’s Brian Lehrer Show, Mr. Moss talks about the campaign, it’s direction and goals, and fields questions and comments from callers who both support and oppose the plan.
