Rehearsal Room Piano Damage On May 19th a leak in Practice Room B (484 Bldg.) damaged the piano. The Practice Room Committee has been in touch w/the MPTA and they are already working to repair and/or restore the piano. The piano IS playable and the repairman feels that it should be used during the restoration. The keys might stick and the tone may be uneven...so be aware. We will keep you up to date as they continue to work on the repairs.
Yotel Movie Nights and Terrace Re Construction
Yotel has removed the bar/Dining Room and Conference Rooms that used to be part of the Terrace/Patio area and behind the restaurant to the East. They also removed the 5th floor rooms and all are being converted into ''sleeping cabins"...it is what they are well known for in Japan. The terrace remains and soon they will remove all the dead bamboo border in the planters. The canopy has already been removed except for a small tented area on the West Side (10th Ave side). That outdoor bar area is small and is part of a standing Community Board 4 BLP agreement. They may remain open till 12:30 on Weekdays and 1:30 on Weekends (Thurs/Fri/Sat). Last call is 1/2 hr earlier. BUT!!!!.... THEY HAVE BEEN CLOSING DOWN MUCH EARLIER.
Yotel Summer Movie Nights
They are having a seated outdoor screening of classic films during select nights all Summer (similar to Bryant Park) The price is $15./$25......w/at your seat snack and beverage service. The difference is that the movie is viewed wearing headphones so they will not disturb the neighbors.
Hopefully that erases some of the misinformation floating around. The MPTA is observing and we are in communication w/the Management (they have also reached out to us).
