Mayor DeBlasio: Save Marilyn's Newsstand. Extended to Nov 10 for signing.
A NYC Chinatown fixture for decades, she is being forced to shrink her newsstand due to unfair and arbitrary application of DOT rules. Other stands face no such demand to shrink their size. Sign this by Oct 4, 2014 and write to Mayor DeBlasio at:

Why is this important?
This fight has not ended!
Last year Marilyn Louie's old newsstand was replaced by a woefully inadequate space to sell anything. The new stand provides only enough space to place 20 newspapers, about a 40% size reduction. Though there was tremendous community and political outcry, the DOT went ahead with their plans. Mayor DeBlasio as Public Advocate supported Marilyn's fight, NOW that he is Mayor, he has the authority to give Marilyn a stand big enough to scrape a living out of.
Please support Marilyn and write to Mayor DeBlasio at:
