Illegal Equinox Billboard Removed!

Workers taking down the Equinox billboard at Greenwich Avenue and West 12th Street today.

We have some great news to share about the huge illegal Equinox billboard on Greenwich Avenue that GVSHP has been fighting to get removed.

After Equinox consistently ignored violations served by City agencies, following our phone campaign and petition drive urging the company to take down their illegal billboard, they agreed, and I am thrilled to report that the sign was finally taken down this morning!

This is a great victory for the historic integrity of our neighborhood, and a reminder that corporations and building owners who try to subvert our city’s landmark law must and will be held accountable.

Thank you to everyone who signed the petition, called and mailed Equinox and its corporate parent Related Companies, and otherwise worked with us to help get this eyesore removed.

To help GVSHP to keep up the fight to protect the historic integrity of our neighborhood and respond quickly to situations like this, make a contribution HERE.
