UPDATE: ANOTHER VICTORY IN THE FIGHT TO SAVE HOTEL PENN The full membership of Community Board 5 in New York City has now officially voted to recommend landmark status for the Hotel Pennsylvania by a vote of 21 to 8. This follows the previous week's vote by a subcommittee to bring the issue to the full board. We had a very good turnout that included HOPE attendees and members of the hotel staff. We were also able to read selected comments from people who sent remarks to our special email address. This is a major victory in the fight to save the hotel from demolition and we want to thank everyone who participated. But these are still the early days of the battle to save the hotel. As we move on to the next step, we will be posting updates here. Please stay updated by visiting the official "Save the Hotel site" and participating in our online forum. You can also continue to send mail to us with your reasons why the hotel should be saved to firstname.lastname@example.org.
