NYC Meeting on 2/20 for "Next Generation" Loft Law

Anonymous Comrade writes


The LiveWork Coalition will host a community meeting with loft tenants and elected representatives Wednesday, February 20th.

Join us on Wednesday, February 20th at 7pm, to meet with loft tenants living without protection from harassment and eviction. The meeting will be held at Henry Street Settlement, Abrons Art Center 466 Grand Street in Manhattan.


We are artists and designers living in lofts not covered under the existing Loft Law of 1980. The LiveWork Coalition was officially created when dozens of long-term tenants were evicted from their lofts in DUMBO in December of 2000. Since then, the LiveWork Coalition has received over 1,000 individual responses to an online census form for loft tenants. Under scrutiny by landlords and developers alike, the LiveWork Coalition has gained support from neighborhood businesses, arts organizations, and galleries.

We are continuing to lobby for the passage of the Next Generation Loft Law, A5580. Our coalition is committed to the preservation of our diverse communities and the continuing contributions that our communities bring to our city.
