Resident Concerns Regarding 23 Wall Street Proposed Liquor License
We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the granting of a liquor and/or cabaret
license to Latitude 360 - a 1500 person occupancy bar, restaurant, entertainment
Complex at 23 Wall Street (the commercial space in the lower floors of a 482 unit condominium). The building is situated in the frozen security zone on the pedestrian mall across the street from both the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall.
We believe that such an establishment will significantly compromise the quality of life and peaceable enjoyment of this growing residential neighborhood. In addition to safety/security, our concerns include:
Sanitation – Trash is already an issue due to the narrow streets and sidewalks on Exchange Place and South William Street.
Vehicular congestion – The streets on the perimeter of the frozen zone are narrow and the influx of cars, taxis and livery cars will increase the already unmanageable congestion
Noise – given the automobile restriction, there is very limited white noise from the streets surrounding the location. There is a canyon effect and voices from the street carry up to the highest levels of the residential buildings.
Delivery Trucks – idling trucks will increase congestion and noise on the already congested narrow streets.
