VICTORY: St. Mark's Bookstore Saved

st marks1

St. Mark’s Bookstore, a legendary progressive bookstore and community institution in Lower Manhattan, was at risk of going out of business when their lease was up and they couldn’t afford their rent, which was set before the downturn. Their allies in the community started a MoveOn Petition that went viral, attracting the attention of local media and the New York Times. Even filmmaker Michael Moore took notice, retweeting the petition and scheduling a special “Save St. Mark’s” book signing. After weeks of campaigning and tens of thousands of signatures, the landlord agreed to a compromise and St. Mark’s was saved.
