What do you want them to do?

SAVE SUBWAY INN!

If you have not heard yet, World-Wide Holdings Corporation who owns our building, and who is worth multi- billions of dollars has decided that our beloved establishment, The Subway Inn which has been a part of this neighborhood for more than 77 years MUST CLOSE BY AUGUST 20th so that high-end, luxury condos can be built on our spot. 

We the undersigned believe that New York City is about more than rich investors gobbling up small family businesses to make a quick buck thereby destroying the integrity of the Upper East Side of Manhattan. We call on lawmakers and concerned New Yorkers to STAND UP to these actions, and to stop World-Wide Holdings Corporation from destroying our home and ripping it away from those who helped build this city and who would never be able to afford the multi-million dollar condos that they are planning to put in place of a neighborhood treasure.

SAVE OUR SUBWAY INN!!!

 

Why is it important?

We believe that New York City is about more than rich investors gobbling up small family businesses to make a quick buck thereby destroying the integrity of the Upper East Side of Manhattan. For more than 40 years-- the ENTIRE Salinas family has poured its heart and soul into this neighborhood landmark. For example, below is a list of the family members who have work at Subway Inn and whose life will be destroyed:

Marcello and Patricia Salinas- Owner

Steven Salinas- Son

Christian Salinas- Son

Mario Roselli- Son 

Enrique Roselli- Son (deceased)

Enrique Roselli Jr- Grandson

Cesar Salinas- Nephew

Rodney Williams- Recently retired last year and was with Marcello the entire time

Save Subway Inn! Get INVOLVED and DONATE

 

Only you can help save our home! We need money to pay our lawyers and to help continue to get the word out about this forced closure. Your donation is crucial and will mean the difference between the doors remaining open or the wrecking ball destroying our beloved DIVE Bar. Don't let Subway Inn become another statistic --where rich investors looking for a quick buck destroy a place where we as a diverse community come together as one. We are Black, White, Hispanic and many other nationalities. We are Gay, Straight, Bi, Rich and Poor. We are Union, Non-Union and all Hardworking. We are employed and unemployed. We are Young and Old. We are women and we are men that know what is right. We are what makes our city the most interesting place in the world to live.  

 

DON'T LET RICH GREEDY INVESTORS BULLDOZE OUR HOME
