Pieces is losing its lease and needs your help to stay in business. They have found a new location nearby on West 8th St., but the local community board has recently made it near impossible for bars with 4 AM closing times to open, move locations, or even change ownership.

If you like hanging out at Pieces and having an affordable place to drink and have fun in NYC's oldest and most historic gay neighborhood, please go there and sign a petition of support. Petitions are available at all times.

If you can't make it there in the next couple of weeks, you can send an email of support to Please include the following, as without it we cannot count you as a supporter. Also, please don't send multiple emails and don't send an email if you have signed a petition in person:

  • Full name.
  • Physical address where you live.
  • Support for Pieces' liquor license application for 61 W. 8th St.
  • Support for Pieces being allowed to stay open until 4 AM.

Best is if you use your own words, but someone wrote this kind email if you need inspiration (the name and address have been changed):

Dear Community Board 2,

I am writing in support of Pieces' move to 61 W. 8th St. keeping its existing closing time of 4 AM. I have enjoyed going to Pieces for years and would like to see it continue to thrive as an affordable Greenwich Village gay bar at its new location.

Yours truly,

Your Name
