The Petitioners request that NY State Liquor Authority ("SLA") only approve the hotel license under these conditions and stipulations. If the SLA or CB3, determines this application does not meet the public standard threshold set-forth in the 500 Ft Law or subject to any other restrictions, i.e. the 200 Ft Law, we the petitioners seek that this application be denied outright and withdraw our support based on the above conditions. We the undersigned live in the buildings adjoined, across, behind, next to or in close proximity to the hotel and will be impacted significantly by the increase in traffic, noise, and pedestrian crowding.
