POWER OF THE PEN: Letter Writing Drive in Response to the Mega-Jail Planned for Chinatown

  • Asia Roma 40 Mulberry Street New York, NY, 10013 United States (map)

Location: Asia Roma

Make your voice heard. The Mayor's plan to close Rikers also includes building 4 new jails in NYC. For Chinatown, this would mean a 10 year demolition and construction plan for a 40+ story block-sized mega-jail. This decade-long disruption will have irrevocable impact on Chinatown's health of the seniors who live next to the site and of the ecology of small businesses in the area. Whether or not you are a resident of Chinatown, you can write your council member before they vote OCT 17.
