SUN NOV 14 LESPI Rally to Restore East River Park’s Historic Track House and Tennis Center! 2PM

Restore, Don’t Demolish! The Lower East Side Preservation Initiative (LESPI) acknowledges the urgent need for the City to provide timely floodproofing for the park, but sees no reason that these historic buildings cannot be saved, restored and re-used! Meet at the Brian Watkins Tennis Center north entrance.
