Oppose Live Performance Venue at 275 Park Avenue
This petition serves to oppose the opening of a live performance venue at 275 Park Ave.
275 Park Performance Venue LLC is seeking to operate a 200 capacity venue that will be home to Laffaholics Comedy Club, as well as amplified live and recorded music, food, and liquor.
The proprietors intend to hold multiple events per evening and operate daily until 2AM, bringing up to 600 people and their respective cars and / or ride shares to an already congested and dangerous intersection. Previous nightlife venues in the neighborhood have had a severely negative impact on the neighborhood due to multiple instances of gun and knife violence, disorderly conduct, congregating in large groups under the BQE, public urination / defecation, public sex, excessive noise, traffic accidents, and vandalism.
This history - coupled with concerns about crowd control, traffic, parking and public safety - lead us to believe the proposed venue will seriously disrupt the quality of life for members of the community, tenants of the building, and neighboring small businesses.
We look forward to welcoming and supporting a new meaningful business to the area. However, we believe this particular business is not a positive addition to the community and should not be granted the requisite permits and liquor license.
