Gem Spa Cash Mob & Art Event

#SaveNYC is hosting a cash mob at Gem Spa to help support this beloved East Village business--and keep it alive. Come prepared to spend some money — egg creams, pretzels, t-shirts, toothpaste! — and take your photo with a surprise work of guerrilla street art, as an acclaimed group of cultural activists and designers radically transform Gem Spa into a dystopian vision for the new St. Mark’s Place.

Saturday, September 14th. Noon
Gem Spa - 131 Second Avenue, NYC

Rally To Save Scoops

Scoops, one of the oldest Caribbean owned businesses on Flatbush Avenue between Lincoln and Hawthorne, has been given an 30 day notice to vacate by their landlord Jeremy Properties or they will face a legal eviction. For 35 years, Scoops has been a cultural and culinary institution in Flatbush. Tony Fongyit, the owner of Scoops is well-known for serving amazing Ital vegetarian foods and vegan ice cream, as well as provided wellness products and advice to our community. We are asking  Jeremy Properties to do the right thing, and give Scoops a new lease!

Friday, July 19th. 6:30pm
Scoops - 1624 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn
