The embattled burger joint P.J. Clarke's near Battery Park City has taken its campaign against landlord Brookfield Properties to the next level and is calling upon its loyal following to get the job done. The restaurant has started a petition in an attempt to sway Brookfield into ceasing the alleged "sabotage" it's enacting on Clarke's in order to force the restaurant out and replace it with a "higher-end tenant." The petition has garnered a scant three signatures thus far (from persons in New Jersey and DC)—but the day is young!

The restaurant has also created some cheeky postcards, which it has been handing out to customers and locals at all its locations to drum up support for their cause. The postcard has been pre-addressed to Ed Hogan, the National Director of Leasing at Brookfield Properties, which, you'll recall, owns and administers the park seized by Occupy Wall Street in 2011.

Last month, the restaurant filed a lawsuit against Brookfield, claiming the company intentionally used sidewalk sheds and barricades for planned renovations to block the restaurant's notable views of the Hudson River and Statue of Liberty, a popular draw for diners in the area. P.J. Clarke's also claims that Brookfield has blocked access to the restaurant from the interior atrium, which had previously been an access point to the restaurant and other, now-shuttered eateries.

A spokesperson for Brookfield Place said they "do not comment on pending litigation."
