"I believe in New Yorkers. Whether they’ve ever
questioned the dream in which they live, I wouldn’t know,
because I won’t ever dare ask that question."
#SaveNYC is a grassroots, crowd-sourced D.I.Y. movement to protect and preserve the diversity and uniqueness of the urban fabric in New York City. As our vibrant streetscapes and neighborhoods are turned into bland, suburban-style shopping malls, filled with chain stores and glossy luxury retail, #SaveNYC is fighting for small businesses and cultural institutions to remain in place. The mission is to bring attention to the plight of mom'n'pops, and to lobby state and city government to implement significant and powerful protections for small businesses and cultural institutions across the five boroughs.
