Letter of Support: Liverpool Town Hall Transformation

Letter from South Queens Chamber of Commerce to Major Clarke and Region of Queens


April 17, 2014

Mayor Clarke,

I am writing on behalf of the South Queens Chamber of Commerce to express our support for the Region of Queens initiative to transform the old Liverpool Town Hall into a year round center for cultural and artistic activity.

The majestic “Town Hall” building is a prominent feature located in the geographic center of Liverpool’s down town business district. The Region’s planned redesign of the space will pro-vide a new entrance and lobby for the Astor Theatre as well as spaces for artistic, heritage and cultural exhibits and events which will be open throughout the seasons. These exciting changes are welcomed by the business community, not only in downtown Liverpool, but throughout South Queens.

At present, performances at the Astor Theatre attract over 15,000 people each year, more than half of whom come from outside of Queens. Their presence creates economic activity within both of Liverpool’s main business districts, at Exit 19 and in the downtown, as well as with busi-nesses along their travel routes.

By enhancing the Astor Theatre, and providing a center for cultural and artistic activities, the Town Hall project will result in more reasons for people to visit South Queens. Our businesses will have the opportunity to interest these visitors in staying, eating and shopping with us. In ad-dition, by creating a core of year round activities in the Town Hall building, the down town busi-ness district will experience new traffic and renewed energy.

The South Queens Chamber of Commerce supports this project and looks forward to the cultural and economic benefits that will flow into our community from its completion.

Robin Anthony, President
