PENN PLAZA DEMOLITION + BEFORE & AFTER, JUNE 2017 (AARON)
MEMORIAL MARCH FOR PENN PLAZA, APRIL 1, 2017. The day after the last tenants of Penn Plaza Apartments left, we held a “memorial march,” a day to remember the need for affordable housing & the tenants who had lived there (especially those who had passed since the evictions), but also to celebrate Whole Foods withdrawing their plans.
WHOLE FOODS ACTION (JAMSHEED). In March, 2017, Penn Plaza Support & Action members educated Whole Foods customers about the grocery’s plans to move into the Penn Plaza site as LG Realty’s “anchor tenant.” Customers spoke out and as a result, Whole Foods withdrew their plans to move in. When we fight, we win!
