Club 57 Way
Hello East Village neighbors! What do Klaus Nomi, Jean Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, David Spada, Marjorie Gross (Seinfeld producer) and many other artists and performers have in common? They got their start at Club 57, the basement artists club under the Polish church at 57 St Marks Place. Club 57 Artists Fund, a non-profit organization, is looking for signatures to co-name St Marks and Second Ave "Club 57 Way." If you live within a two block radius of the intersection, won't you please sign the petition? Please include your address with apartment number in the comments. You will not be contacted by anyone and your address will only be seen by the street co-naming committee.
We're looking for signatures from people who live on St Marks between 3rd and Ave A, E 6th, E 7th, E 9th, and E 10th between 1st and 2nd Ave. Please sign the petition if you live in this area and would like to see many East Village artists honored with a street sign. It would go under the St Marks sign, not replace it. If you'd like more information or would rather sign a paper petition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
