Leonard Jacobs Takes on Evil Forces Obstructing Marx Brothers Place

In his latest post about the 93rd Street Beautification Association's ongoing preservation campaign, Leonard Jacobs takes on the evil forces that have persistently obstructed the lawful landmarking of historic Marx Brothers Place in Carnegie Hill.

We appreciate Jacobs' courage, but given the length of the horns spotted poking up above the primped coiffs of these evil doers, we strongly recommend that the NY theater critic and social commentator start hanging some mighty huge cloves of garlic right next to that faithful kitchen witch of his.

Please click on the link below & read the full story on Jacobs' popular web site The Clyde Fitch Report: http://www.clydefitchreport.com/2010/09/spurned-by-cb8-and-garodnick-marx-brothers-place-goes-to-the-dogs/#comment-24105.

Manhattan Borough President Replies to Harpo Marx' Son's Request

As you may recall, Harpo Marx' son Bill wrote to Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer asking him to intervene and vacate the invalid July 21 NYC Community Board 8 vote on Marx Brothers Place.

After hearing back from the Borough President's office, Bill Marx forwarded the BP's reply on to us: Essentially, while the BP's office expressed its ongoing interest in the 93rd Street Beautification Association's preservation efforts, the letter indicated that the BP's hands are tied when it comes to undoing a CB8 vote and that the best avenue for redress would be to ask CB8 to vacate its own vote.

So, following the BP's lead, the 93rd Street Beautification Association has asked CB8 to vacate the invalid July 21 vote.

And now we need to ask you to let CB8 know that it should do the right thing by tossing the tainted vote and restoring the 93rd Street Beautification Association's Request to CB8's calendar as soon as possible before any more historic structures on Marx Brothers Place are forever lost to the wrecking ball.

Many thanks for your help!
