Today in NIMBYism: Cooper Square Hotel, Grand Park, and Westville


A few spots with headaches on their hands today: According to Jeremiah’s Vanishing, an apartment dweller near the Cooper Square Hotel is using a megaphone to keep partiers off the second-floor terrace after hours. “Attention Cooper Square Hotel douchebags,” a disembodied voice recently called into the night, “Shut the hell up and get off the patio.” Meanwhile, the Lo-Down finds out that an Asian-fusion restaurant is also in the running for the former Isabella’s Oven space — bad news for Jesse Hartman, who had hoped to bring Grand Park there but first has to assure neighbors about his Frank Lloyd Wright–style garden. And finally, Eater reports that Westville is briefly out of commission while it renovates to comply with landmark requirements.
