P.J. Clarke's started this petition to Brookfield Properties

The staff and management of P.J. Clarke’s believe that their landlord, Brookfield Properties, is trying to push the restaurant out of its current location in Battery Park. Brookfield has been using construction in the building to make it almost impossible for P.J. Clarke’s to succeed, putting up scaffolding over the outdoor patio and making it difficult to find the restaurant from inside. P.J. Clarke’s moved to its current home right after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks – at a time when many businesses were nervous about opening in downtown – and became an important part of the neighborhood. However, as the neighborhood developed over the years, Brookfield came to believe it could use the property for a higher-end tenant at higher rental rates.
