Banca Stabile Petition
TO: Robert B. Tierney, Chairman
NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission
One Centre Street, 9thFloor North
New York, NY 10007
We, the undersigned, urge the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission to calendar for a public hearing the historic Banca Stabile Row at 181-189 Grand Street in Little Italy. No commercial building within the Chinatown & Little Italy National Register Historic District is more symbolic of the Italian-American history of Little Italy than the Stabile Bank. The misguided plan to evict the tenants and sell the historic buildings to a tear-down developer would drastically and irreversibly alter the very character of traditional Little Italy and further diminish what is left of Italian culture in this city.
