Last Call to Save Chumley's at 86 Bedford Street, New York City

This petition had 2,448 supporters

Chumley's, a beloved Greenwich Village Bar since 1922 and the last beating heart of Bohemia, has been closed nearly nine years. A rag-tag group of locals, retired Firemen, and aging restaurant workers have thrown thousands of hours of work, millions of dollars in cash and countless prayers at the the wheels of Justice, Reason and New York City's many mantled Bureaucracy keeping alive the dream of Chumley's reopening.

There is one step, one barrier and one hope left. NYC's Community Board Two has to approve an application for a liquor license at 86 Bedford Street. Frankly, no liquor license means no Chumley's. And this is the last chance of the monied real estate interests and AstroTurf NIMBYs to block Chumley's return.

Please sign the following Petition to being back one authentic link to historic Greenwich Village in a world "seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil." See you there. #openchumleys

"We, the undersigned residents, neighbors and merchants welcome and encourage the return of our neighbor Chumley’s to 86 Bedford Street and Greenwich Village. We acknowledge the operating hours previously agreed upon with Community Board Two’s SLA Committee (and the full Community Board) of Sunday-Wednesday 11 am to 1 am and Thursday-Saturday 11 am to 2 am. We believe Chumley’s operators, known to the community for many years, will conduct a business that is contributory, cooperative and responsive to neighborhood concerns as assured."
