Bronx residents will rally at noon tomorrow, Saturday, January 23, 2021, at a Riverdale coffee shop at risk of closing due to the coronavirus pandemic to call on elected officials to pass legislation aimed at rent relief for commercial businesses and the commercial vacancy tax.

Buunni Coffee, at 3702 Riverdale Avenue, Bronx, NY 10463, is being forced to close by the end of January because its landlord will no longer accept a reasonable rent during the pandemic. Buunni has been a vital part of the neighborhood, a center for local activism, art, and music for the past 3 years.

It is an example of thousands of small businesses essential to their neighborhoods that are being forced to close, with the loss of badly needed jobs.

Action by City and State governments is necessary to save our small businesses.
