Tell NYC's Night Mayor: Save NYC Spaces

The City of New York is getting a Nightlife Mayor. Pack Market Hotel with creative heroes from across the city to tell the Commissioners who decide: #SaveNYCSpaces.
This artist-led event is the only chance for public input before the Night Mayor is chosen. Cultures that inspire the world are born and grow here in NYC's diverse grassroots spaces. They need to be preserved, not targeted nor forced out of existence by the affordability crisis.
The Night Mayor's job should be to #SaveNYCSpaces, not amplify gentrification.
Thank you for joining us on October 11 to make sure help goes to those who need it!

What Should the Night Mayor Do?
Repeal NYC's 1926 'No Dancing' Discriminatory Cabaret Law #LetNYCDance

The Night Mayor should NOT be in the pocket of real estate developers, which would cause further displacement in our neighborhoods. #NoGentrification
