S.O.S. - Save Our Studio!
Friends of Eastern Effects,
We are writing to ask for your help. After years of hard work and significant financial investment, we find ourselves in danger of losing our main stage at 270 Nevins Street through eminent domain. The City of New York is proposing to take our site for use as a temporary construction staging location as they build two combined sewage overflow (CSO) tanks next door to clean up the Gowanus Canal. The loss of the soundstage at 270 Nevins Street would be devastating to our business. You can read more about our situation here: http://easterneffects.com/home/sos/
With your support, we can convince our government officials to use one of the surrounding, vacant and more fitting properties for the temporary construction staging. Using one of these alternative sites would not close small businesses or eliminate jobs, and would allow us to continue to thrive in Gowanus.
Please click here: http://easterneffects.com/home/sos-update/ to sign a letter in support of Eastern Effects and our employees. The time to make a difference is now: the official comment period on the proposed staging location and tank siting ends Tuesday, May 31st.
Your support has been crucial over the years as we’ve built Eastern Effects into a state-of-the-art production studio. We hope you will take a moment to voice your support to our representatives.
Please forward this message or link onto other friends of Eastern Effects.
Again, thank you for all you’ve done to support us and please reach out if you have any questions.
With many thanks,
Scott, Laura, and Chris – Owners of Eastern Effects, Inc.
