Bay Ridge to Commerce Bank: Drop Dead

Word has it that New Jersey based Commerce Bank, currently under investigation
>by the Feds, wants to barge into the neighborhood demolish the Tiffany Diner and build one of their banks on the ruins.

Listen, "Jersey Boys"--Bay Ridge loves the Tiffany Diner, and will not tolerate a bunch of Swamp Rats coming in here to steal it away from us. So get your ass back across the Verrazano Bridge, and keep driving west until you you reach Cherry Hill.

We have enough banks. We do NOT have enough good diners. Get lost!

BOYCOTT COMMERCE BANK UNTIL THEY DROP THE PLAN TO DEMOLISH THE TIFFANY DINER

Stopping the bank, if the project is as-of-right, is very difficult. But getting them to do a proper building for your neighborhood is very possible:

Phantom,

I expect to see news footage of you chained to the diner in the near future. Good luck! You'll surely need it.

I think the bank is a fine idea. But Commerce Bank should split the ground floor with a Rite Aid or Eckerd. I think the people within a block or two are under served. Commerce should also build three stories of apartments to make some money off the mortgages. The additional residents can take advantage of the ample street parking the neighborhood provides.

Eventhough the Tiffany is not what it use to be I'd be very sad to see it go. I remember when it first opened back in the mid to late 60's I believe and it was one of my family's favorite places.

Phantom is right enough banks already!

I am tired of banks everywhere. They clear out many people because those persons can't manage their finances wisely. They get new and new credit cards and run into debt. Sadly and silly, isn't it?
