RE: The SPOT Club on Tenth Avenue 44th/45th Streets
We the undersigned reside in Hell’s Kitchen.
We ask that you deny the application for the SPOT late night club.
We need law abiding owners in that space, and not a late night performance venue. The last thing we need is a cabaret. It is not in our community’s interest to have lines of patrons and crowds smoking on the sidewalks until 4 a.m. This area is residential, comparatively quiet, and we want to keep it that way.
Please help us.
The SPOT operators have a very bad record here. The SLA closed all three of their last establishments - but not before neighbors had endured years of attack on their quality of life.
Please deny this license. Neither the establishment nor the applicants belong here.
