CBGB - A January 2008 Update

I walked by CBGB tonight on my way to the train. Muzzy Rosenblatt, from the Bowery Residents' Committee, just had to have Hilly out of that space because the property was worth $40-50K a month in rent. Well Muzzy...CBGB shut down in October 2006...how much rent have you collected thus far?

Here is my suggestion - write a letter to Muzzy and ask "Was it worth it? You pushed out CBGB who was paying rent and tried to keep order on the block and you couldn't get The Gap, Starbucks or KFC to take over the space"

Here is the contact info for Muzzy and the the BRC:
