On Thursday, November 6th it was announced that Cafe Edison in Times Square is being denied a new lease by The Hotel Edison management. The diner -- which has served as a hub for the Broadway community for 30+ years, and over the decades has counted Neil Simon, August Wilson, Jackie Mason, Martha Plimpton, and Lin-Manuel Miranda among its many fans -- is expected to close at the end of the year to make way for a new restaurant with a 'name chef.' The story -- which was broken by the popular blog Jeremiah's Vanishing New York and has since been covered by The New York Times, New York Magazine, Eater NY, and BroadwayWorld -- has sparked an outpouring of support from the Broadway community and New Yorkers at large, as well as produced a widely circulated online petition.
