It's discouraging and disappointing to see how rent escalation in NYC is driving out long-standing mom+pops. Greedy developers and investors don't value the preservation of community establishments, and it's destroying the character and roots of our beautiful city. It's up to us to speak up. #SAVENYC has sprung up to "bring attention to the plight of Mom and Pop, raise awareness of the issues, and encourage state and city government to implement protections for small businesses and cultural institutions across the five boroughs of New York City." Townsquared, we should be joining in this fight. To participate http://www.savenyc.nyc/
