To whom it may concern,
My neighbors & I live right next to the off-campus St. John's Dorm on Henley Road. We really appreciate the coverage your web site has given this crap.
We, obviously, want to stop this from happening. We understand that they've found some loopholes to build this thing legally, so we're trying a different angle. Our plan, however impossible, is to get the University themselves to realize in advance what an error this will be & to change their minds.
There are large, red, anti-dorm signs in every surrounding lawn & there will be more soon. We had a protest/demonstration at their open house last weekend. There were about 50 protesters and then St. John's sent student volunteers from the open house out to us with a bullhorn. The were only there to antagonize us. They even called the NYPD. I have attached some photos from that day to this e-mail.
We will be protesting AGAIN, this Saturday at their Homecoming Weekend. We will be at their main gate on Utopia Parkway from 9:30am.
