NYCHA Tenants Say that the Demolition of Public Housing in Chelsea is a Developer Land Grab that is a Recipe for Displacement: Rally/Press Conference before Manhattan Board 4’s Full Board to explain to CB4 and media that the process has not been resident-led, nor democratic.

[NEW YORK, NY, July 25th] —- Tenants of the New York City Housing Authority’s Elliott-Chelsea and Fulton Houses, housing advocates and concerned residents from the community, will be holding a rally/press conference before the Manhattan Community Board 4’s Full Board Meeting, Wednesday July 26th at 6pm, on the The High Line Entrance at West 14th Street and 10th Avenue in Chelsea.

(1) Tenants will ask CB4 for their support and for a board resolution demanding that the Fulton and Elliott-Chelsea Developments be repaired, not demolished. In 2019, CB4 was part of the Chelsea Working Group that concluded that Fulton Houses should be repaired, not demolished. Tenants are asking CB4 to honor their prior commitment and stand on the side of NYCHA tenants as well as other institutions like The Legal Aid Society and Community Services Society that recently came out against the demolition — stating the plan was not resident-led and guaranteed to uproot thousands of vulnerable New Yorkers who have resided in the community for decades.

MSCC Launches News Rack / Newspaper Dispenser Design Contest

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  April 2017 – Midtown South Community Council (MSCC) is launching its Newsrack/Newspaper Dispenser Design Contest. The prizes are worth the effort. So get creative and get going.

The MSCC is looking for innovative designs for an aesthetically appealing outdoor Newsrack/Newspaper Dispenser to improve pedestrian safety and passage in the Midtown South area. The design should be streamlined, should showcase the publication, should be immovable, and able to withstand damage and the elements.

Our newspapers and magazines are currently housed in plastic newsracks that are regulated through the Department of Transportation (DOT). These newsracks are easily manipulated and often a problematic; many are empty and turned on their side for sitting, and even sleeping, and they are often used as posts to chain racks, hand carts, and milk crates to. Many of the newsracks do not include contact information, are damaged, and some are moved and placed illegally(?).

The contest prizes include:

  • $500 for the design accepted by MSCC
  • Additional $1000 if the design is accepted by MSCC’s partners, Community Boards and publishers
  • Additional $1,000 if the design renders an acceptable prototype
