On Friday, Rizzoli Bookstore will be forced to close its doors after 29 years in the six-story architectural gem located at 31 West 57th Street.
In solidarity with those losing their jobs and in recognition of a city losing an important piece of our cultural fabric, Community Board Five is calling for a rally of support. We would like to encourage everyone to attend.
This rally will be held Friday April 11th at 10:00 A.M. in front of Rizzoli Bookstore.
Let’s show the Landmarks Preservation Commission and the media that the city cannot continue to allow the demolition of historic buildings to go unchecked. Invite your friends and everyone you know who cares about great architecture, bookstores, and the future of our city. Get the word out on Facebook and Twitter. Let’s show the LPC and media how much beautiful bookstores matter!
