The Extell tower is being built on a former publicly-owned lot (the Two Bridges Urban Renewal Area) that housed a Pathmark on 227 Cherry St., the only affordable supermarket serving the surrounding low-income community. Since the Pathmark was closed in 2012, residents have struggled to find quality affordable groceries. Furthermore, the Extell tower will be built in the middle of several NYCHA and publicly subsidized low and moderate income developments.
Lower East Side Unite!
Let’s send a message to Mayor de Blasio:
STOP Extell’s racist luxury skyscraper!
Low-income housing and affordable businesses now!
