  1. Sure, everyone wants clean streets, they’re great, but in the past 5-6 years the Chinatown Partnership has not proven that they have saved small businesses from leaving Chinatown.  FACT:   This Chinatown BID proposal has recently had more Verified Objections filed against it than any other BID proposal in NYC’s history!! This unprecedented number of objections, about 600, was accumulated in a matter of weeks last month, and that number is growing daily. This verifiable FACT, as stated by the City Clerk, has shown the claim of Councilmember Margaret Chin and the Chinatown Partnership – that Chinatown mostly supports the BID – is entirely false! The Chinatown Partnership has used unvetted, dubious “survey” data to support their claim of support, while ALL anti-BID signatures/objections are verified, notarized, vetted and REAL. This is just one of MANY reasons why the City Council cannot approve or support the Chinatown BID, the pro-BID people and Margaret Chin are not to be trusted to impose a PERMANENT NEW TAX on Chinatown in a time of RECESSION.
