New York bar Max Fish has long been the Lower East Side night spot for skateboarders, artists, and musicians of all types. Last Friday it was shut down by the NYPD, and in response it's patrons have drawn up a petition in order to save their local landmark. If you would like to show your support, click here and sign the petition! Visit for more info.

Max Fish opened on Ludlow Street in 1989. We have nurtured and supported the Lower East Side arts community for over 20 years--a community that is increasingly threatened by a variety of outside sources including landlords, real-estate developers and the NYPD. Your signature shows support for the continued existence of a vibrant and positive establishment--one that embodies the creative spirit of the LES and elevates the quality of life for the community.

Thank you.
