The Fairway Cafe, a small eatery on the second floor of the bustling supermarket on 74th Street and Broadway, is in danger of closing, and a community group has sprung up to try to save it, Eater reported.
Save Fairway Cafe is a grassroots group that is pushing back against plans to turn the cafe into a specialty coffee section or other grocery space. They will be posting a petition on the site in the next few days, as well as other ways to lobby management not to make the changes. The organization can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Fairway Cafe is one of the gems of the UWS neighborhood, and we need your support in going to the owners to convince them not to close. We don’t have much time: discussions are already underway to replace the Cafe with more grocery space.”
It’s been a tough few months for some of the more iconic businesses on the Upper West Side — the taxman came for H&H Bagels, O’Neal’s at Lincoln Center announced it was closing, and now this! Check out what other businesses have been opening and closing in the neighborhood in recent weeks.
