Neumann Leathers fundraiser

8/5/2008:

If you care about the future of downtown Hoboken, it’s recommended that you attend and support the cause!

From Tim Daly:

Emergency legal warchest fundraiser this Thursday!

When: This Thursday, August 7, 2008 (7pm to midnight)
Where: Tim Daly’s Studio, 5th floor, 300 Observer Highway

hoboken-neumann-leathers-tenants-association-logo.jpg“This event is to raise emergency funds for our legal warchest!

Any contribution will get you in the door BUT a contribution over $25 (apart from art purchases or tenant dues) gets you a swanky NLTA t-shirt (normal price: $20), white on black — ladies’ tanktops too! Perfect to wear to the Zoning Board meetings, future demonstrations and civil disobedience actions!

This party/event will feature original artwork and prints for sale and auction by myself (Tim Daly) and various Neumann artists. Check www.neumanntenants.org after 6 pm Monday to see some images. On Thursday evening at 9 pm, final bids on artwork will be taken, artwork auctioned, followed immediately by loud dance music from 10:30 pm to midnight; salsa y Prince solamente!

No joke, NLTA needs to raise tens of thousands of dollars in the next few weeks to defend Neumann Leathers (the last remaining Arts and Industry building left in Hoboken) against TCR’s doomsday plan for the Neumann site. Multiple Zoning Board meetings will start August 19, and we’ll need to present our own expert witnesses on historic preservation, environmental issues, traffic and city planning.

We’ll also need a large supportive crowd at these meetings. We will attempt to predict the best times to come to meetings so your time and energy isn’t wasted in this cumbersome process.

Friends of Neumann–Now is the time!

Tim Daly

[/quote] “Slavic countries”. That is just so f*cking hilarious, so monstrously hilarious. How does a brain permit itself to be so mistreated, so humiliated, by people like Furey? When does a brain say enough is enough? When does it revolt? Furey doesn’t work for the post office, does he?[/quote]

But you didn’t answer my question, and sidestepped it. What is the architecture you refer to, Danzig? :mrgreen:

i don’t want to see the tenants succeed? this is my second post on this thread? not sure where you’re getting all this information about me? “we know, we know…” wtf do you know? how the F do you know i’m not an artist? in my 1st thread i asked the question fi i donate am i paying for BOTH sides of this legal battle. in my 2nd post (the only 2 on this thread) i asked why this renters don’t want to move out of a building that must have had tons of carcinogens used in it. so exactly where do YOU get all this information about where MY interests lie?
“we know, we know…” you don’t know sh1t pal.

[quote comment=”98653″]i wouldn’t want to work there. and the building is NOT attractive. i don’t want the mayor to hand someone’s private property to someone else, but that building sux. why can’t the artists move? too much valuable art to move? the paint too heavy? i continue to be puzzled by the argument that they can’t move or that there is some historice value to this building.[/quote]

Are you in some sort of competition with yourself to post increasingly moronic observations? We all know that you are not an artist, you are not interested in helping to save the building, you don’t want to see the tenants succeed. We know you don’t understand the significance of the buildings. OK already. We know. We know.

But something we really don’t know is this: Why does the R. Neumann company continue to hold itself out as a leather manufacturer ( http://www.manta.com/coms2/dnbcompany_cxz4f ) when President Richard Berheim admits that R. Neumann is now a real estate management and development company? Maybe we should ask him: (201) 659-3400

you guys have any idea of the chemicals used in tanning leather? the various toxic chemicals used make that mercury contaminated GE building that was razed seem like a health food store. i wouldn’t want to work there. and the building is NOT attractive. i don’t want the mayor to hand someone’s private property to someone else, but that building sux. why can’t the artists move? too much valuable art to move? the paint too heavy? i continue to be puzzled by the argument that they can’t move or that there is some historice value to this building.
