 MORE VERY IMPORTANT CONTACTS for the “no bar in our backyards” project:

If you are fed up with and bothered by the noisy, smoking, inebriated Earl’s customers blocking the sidewalk in front of Earl’s last night, last weekend, or even during the week, or if their noise and/or cigarettes are coming in your windows from the front, please call 311 now or go online here to file a complaint about it! (YOU CAN DO THIS ANONYMOUSLY).No complaints? Earl’s says “no problem!”

As far as we know there were no permits they only pulled a permit LAST WEEK for the months of work they have done  in the backyard and in the buildings to give Earl’s proposed SIXTY ADDTITIONAL customers access to the THREE yards…

Politely and briefly explain where you live, why this expansion is bad for you and for the neighborhood, and ask that they express their opposition to the Community Board 11’s allowing Earls Beer and Cheese to expand into THREE backyards…

Explain that this is a serious health and quality of life issue, where noise and cigarette smoke and food and beer smells will come into your windows, and that the expansion of this bar will Infringe upon your quiet enjoyment of residential rights as a renter (or shareholder) in your building that faces, or is next to these THREE backyards where 60 people will be drinking beer and carousing all day and night.
