Where the elites meet, to close a street To The Editor: Re: “L Train Upheaval Could Usher in Car-Free Era on 14 Street” (news, May 19, 2016): Oh yes, now let’s shut down 14th St. to cars, so that commuters from the “elite” areas of Brooklyn, served by the L train, are not inconvenienced. Well, […]

Letters: Week of March 31, 2016

The case to curb Barneys’ loading zone plan To The Editor: Re: “Barneys Bargain Table: When Neighborhood Activism and CB4 Scrutiny Made a Retail Behemoth Blink” (news, Feb. 25, 2016): At a recent CB4 transportation committee meeting, the luxury retailer Barneys made a presentation seeking to have three parking spots on W. 16th St. converted […]

Discover the gardener within Re “Water Main Work Wreaks Havoc on Volunteer’s Tree Pits” (news, Mar. 10, 2016): To The Editor: Thank you, Yannic Rack, for telling the story so plainly about my three little tree pits, and the circle of Chelsea Garden Club members who care for the bike lane trees within our community, […]

Barneys bad for authentic hippies To The Editor: Re: “Barneys Bargain Table: When Neighborhood Activism and CB4 Scrutiny Made a Retail Behemoth Blink” (news, Feb. 25, 2016): My first objection to the new Barneys is its ugly storefront, the clumsy metal (aluminum?) overhang, and whatever that large black structure is for, whose girders partially block […]

Letters: Week of Feb. 25, 2016

Bravo for the Blotter To The Editor: My wife and I are delighted by Sean Egan’s Police Blotter column in Chelsea Now. We’ve taken to reading it out loud to one another and it never fails to entertain. You’ve taken what is typically a grim subject (especially in other local papers) and turned it into […]

Letters: Week of Jan. 28, 2016

Bravo for Motley exhibit To The Editor: Re “Buhmann on Art: Motley at the Whitney” (arts article, Dec. 31): Thank you for giving Archibald Motley some long overdue recognition. I say “overdue” because when I went to the new Whitney recently, my wife and I discovered that this elegant museum had given an entire floor […]

Bad horsemanship Re “Letters to the Editor” (Dec. 31, 2015): To the Editor: I am shocked at the letter in your recent publication by Andrew Alpern and feel the need to address it.  It is one thing to have lively debate on an issue [horse carriages], but quite another to allow such nasty and unwarranted […]

Letters: Week of Dec. 31, 2015

Carriage horse opponents ignore reality Re “Letters” (Dec. 24, 2015): To The Editor: The letters of Elizabeth Forel and Jen Wilder in opposition to New York’s iconic horse-and-carriages reveal what their misplaced and emotional PETA-like mindsets ignore. Ms. Forel makes the geographically-dyslexic assertion that the “hack line, which is on 59th St., [is] inside Central Park.” Perhaps […]

Letters: Week of Dec. 24, 2015

Central Park stable plan is ‘unworkable’ To The Editor: Re: “West Side Stables are Holdouts of Old New York” (news, Dec. 10. 2015): Mayor de Blasio’s plan to reduce the carriage trade, which suggests building a stable in Central Park for 70 horses, is unworkable. Parkland, according to NYS law, is an inalienable right of […]

Letters, Week of Sept. 17, 2015

It’s crazy not to love Lenore To The Editor: Re: “Rhymes With Crazy” (weekly column by Lenore Skenazy): Crazy, but not lazy or hazy. Nope. Your columns are sharp and well written — a pleasure to read. I’ve been enjoying them since Chelsea Now started delivering to our lobby at Penn South. As someone who […]
