The Civic Center Residents Coalition was formed shortly after the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001 to address street shutdowns including Park Row, rerouting of MTA bus routes and rampant government permit placard abuse. C.C.R.C. is comprised of residential complexes Chatham Green, Chatham Towers, Southbridge Towers and Chinatown area local businesses and residents.

Would the city try digging up Fifth Avenue in front of Saks weeks before the holidays when struggling businesses are trying to make it through the recession? Would they hold a big neighborhood meeting to rearrange the concrete in front of their businesses and force locals to scramble and find out what was afoot during the Thanksgiving holiday? Hell no! What are we -- chopped turkey?!
When election time rolls around -- let's remember who was on our side and who sat on their hands while our streets were ripped up!
