I just came by this horrible information on the newly discovered Marx Brothers blog (which you should visit if your a Marxist, alongside with Matthew Coniam's wonderful The Marx Brothers Council of Britain).
179 E. 93rd Street, NYC, where the Marx Brothers spent their childhood years, is threatened of being torn down. Read more in the article in The New York Times here. I was pleased to read that Woody Allen, a true Marxist and personal friend of Groucho, had reacted on this.
Do you want to save the building? There's a petition to sign if you follow this link. You only need to fill in your name and email (the latter can be chosen to be hidden).
This can not be happening! And how helpless do not a little girl an another continent like me, feel? I plan to visit that address some time in my life, and it better be still there when I come, or else... "You know this means war!", to quote Groucho in A Night at the Opera (1935).
