Beyond Borders of the Upper West Side, Preservationists Sound the Call to Arms

Save Chelsea is calling on you -- on all of us! -- to join them in their efforts to protect Chelsea Market from inappropriate rezoning.  As they write in their online petition: 

The Chelsea Market complex, built in stages from the late 19th through the early 20th centuries as a factory for Nabisco, is a stunningly successful example of adaptive re-use, which respected the history of these buildings while giving them new life. This new plan would undo that respectful relationship, as these huge new additions would literally loom over the historic buildings as well as the nearby High Line park.
