"We Really Shut Down the Neighborhood"

You might remember back in October that the Roosevelt used a filming permit to get 7th street closed for a party held in front of the building. Representatives of the development claimed that the LA Femme Film Festival simply wanted to film a masterwork titled "Roosevelt Lofts Promo Video" and that no way were they using the filming as a cover for closure.

Today Roosevelt Sales Manager Randelle Green sent out an email to those who had RSVP'ed for the October gathering. Take a look at how it begins (emphasis mine):

We here at the Roosevelt want to thank you for coming out to our Mega- Block Party back in October. We really shut down the neighborhood that evening, thanks for making it such a success.

Thank you Roosevelt. Shutting down the neighborhood is exactly what we all want here in Downtown. We gloat about how successfully we disrupt the community as well. I'm sure you'll fit right in.
