Online PR News – 06-March-2020 – Brooklyn, NY – BROOKLYN, NEW YORK – Leaders of Community Board #3 and Community Board 3’s Economic Development Committee stand united the desire to revoke the liquor license of Amour Cabaret, after numerous violent activities and the unfortunate fatal shooting occurrence on March 3, 2020. Amour Cabaret, a target for dangerous and illicit activity, is not the type of business Community Board #3 would like in our neighborhood.
Brooklyn Community Board 3 will hold a press conference on March 6th at 8:00 AM regarding the recent shooting that happened outside of Amour Cabaret. The press conference will be held in front of 566 Nostrand Avenue, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11216. Councilman Robert E. Cornegy, Jr., New York City Council Member for the 36th District, representing Bedford-Stuyvesant and northern Crown Heights in Brooklyn has been confirmed to attend.
Community Board #3 Chair Richard Flateau stated:
“The community is appalled at the senseless loss of life of a 26-year-old young man who was shot to death in front of Amour Cabaret. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of that young man who was yet another victim of gun violence. Given that Amour Cabaret seems to be a magnet for violence and illicit activity, Community Board #3 is now calling on the New York State Liquor Authority to immediately revoke their liquor license. We will do everything we can to actively seek mitigating any further illicit activity from occurring. Plans will be shared as they develop."
Additionally, Community Board #3 Chair of the Economic Development Committee Tywan Anthony stated:
“The community board is saddened and shocked with the incident that took place at Amour Cabaret on March 3, 2020. A loss of a life is never acceptable!
The Economic Development committee remains committed to ensuring that businesses that obtain an SLA license in our community have the resources they need to sustain and grow. We encourage businesses that benefit our great community to remain here; as these businesses have a positive economic impact. Businesses that do not fit that mold or cause harm to the people that live here will have their license revoked, and we will fight to ensure that happens.”
The safety of Community Board 3 residents is paramount and one of our top priorities. Community Board 3 stands with elected officials and residents of Bedford Stuyvesant with a zero tolerance for establishments in our community that would negatively affect quality of life.
Community Board 3 would like to extend their condolences and prayers to the family of the young man who lost his life.
