Dear Members of Community Board #3 Manhattan, We, the undersigned residents strongly oppose the granting of any form of liquor license to the Mercury Dime establishment on 246 East 5th Street. This block is narrow and mainly residential, including the Krause home for developmentally disabled adults and the JASA senior/disabled residence. We are already oversaturated with liquor licenses (including the soon to be opened Cooper Square Hotel). On East 5th Street between Bowery and 2nd Ave there are six liquor licenses. We the residents respectfully request that the SLA committee take our quality of life concerns into consideration with the understanding that this narrow street already has its full share of drinking establishments.
