• Cmunity Brd Mtng: Roxy

    This Tuesday, you have a real opportunity to stand up for New York
    City nightlife, which has been increasingly under attack from a small
    group of residents. These groups are fighting to end the city’s legacy
    as a global nightlife destination, attempting to allow fewer licenses
    to be issued, closing bars early, and even shutting down some venues.

    The historic Roxy nightclub is attempting to reopen, and their ability
    to obtain a liquor license may be blocked by Chelsea’s fringe
    anti-nightlife activists. On Tuesday, you can attend Community Board
    Four’s Business Licenses & Permits Meeting and ask the Board to
    preserve New York’s outstanding nightlife.

    Roxy could practically be designated a landmark, defined in New York
    City as a structure at least thirty years old that possesses “…a
    special character or special historical or aesthetic interest or value
    as part of the development, heritage, or cultural characteristics of
    the city, state, or nation,” according to the Landmarks Preservation
    Commission. Roxy first opened in the 1970s as a roller disco, and was
    known as the ‘Studio 54 of roller rinks,’ whose guest list included
    the 1980 US Mens Hockey Team, which had just won an Olympic Gold Medal
    for the United States. In 1982, Roxy transformed into one of the
    birthplaces of hip hop, showcasing hip hop pioneers as illustrious as
    Afrika Bambaataa and Grandmaster Flash. My own memories are more
    recent; I was a regular attendee of Roxy Saturdays, the John
    Blair-sponsored gay night where icons like Madonna and Cher would
    occasionally perform. Even beyond its cultural and historical
    importance, though, Roxy was an absolute success story as a clubgoing
    destination; it remains a beloved fixture in New York’s nightlife and
    has earned the right to reopen in the neighborhood that it has
    fostered for over thirty years.

    Beyond The Roxy’s license problem, there is a disturbing trend first
    reported last April in The New York Sun. “In most parts of Manhattan,
    bar and club owners say, it has become nearly impossible to open new
    nightlife establishments that are permitted to serve alcohol until 4
    am.” The “City That Never Sleeps” is under attack from those residents
    who move into neighborhoods that have been revitalized in large part
    by their vibrant nightlife, only to attempt gut that very nightlife
    and turn the neighborhoods into the equivalent of suburban bedroom
    communities. Unless we act now, we could see our 4am nightspots
    dwindle off. Make your voice heard Tuesday.

    This is more than a lifestyle concern; nightclubs and the businesses
    that serve them bring over $10 billion in economic activity to New
    York City and employ over 100,000 people. On Tuesday, tell the Board
    that failure to grant full liquor licenses will effect thousands of
    your friends and neighbors.

    The fight won’t be over Tuesday, though: please mark your calendars
    for Wednesday, July 23rd, when the full board will meet to debate its
    final recommendation to the State Liquor Authority. We need hundreds
    of people, gay and otherwise, to come and show power in action. The
    anti-nightlife frenzy of Community Board Four is destroying the
    quality of life for thousands of people in our community. Let’s
    exercise our democratic rights and reopen Roxy.

    I hope you’ll join me at both meetings. Bring a friend. Bring five.
    The future of New York City nightlife is in your hands. And hey, we
    can all go out for some drinks afterwards. Hopefully we can find a
    place nearby still open.

    Meeting Details:

    Community Board 4, Business Licenses & Permits Meeting, Tuesday, July
    8th @ 6:30PM at The Westin Hotel (270 W. 43rd St.) in The Minetta
    Room.

    Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008, 6:30 p.m, Roosevelt Hospital, 1000 Tenth
    Av. (b. 58th / 59th)

    We’re taking off a little early to get a good seat for the fireworks…We’ll be back on Monday! While we’re gone, check out the back catalog in the radio archives (Dex from Underground Resistance just played a dope set last night that’s definitely worth listening to!) and get to some of the events listed in the calendar.

  • NEWS: GRAF SHOP OPENS IN GRNPT

    By Garrett Sloane – AMNY

    “The store, Alphabeta in Greenpoint, proudly embraces graffiti culture and even offers artists a space for their work. But any mention of graffiti among some New Yorkers conjures searing images of a city in economic and social despair. A store that glorifies graffiti, says Councilman Peter Vallone Jr., (D- Astoria), is the equivalent of creating a criminal supply shop.” [Read More]
