Letters To The Editor: July 23, 2015

  FEEDBACK FROM FACEBOOK Re “Momentum Building to Confront Construction Permit Fraud (news, July 16, 2015): Thank you, Eileen, for your well-written and thorough reporting on this vital topic. It’s gratifying to know that a truly grassroots movement born in the heart of Chelsea has gotten so much traction, especially from our elected officials. The […]

Hopes Pier55 will prevail To The Editor: Re “Lawsuit Aims to Nix Diller and DvF’s Hudson Hopes” (news article, June 18, 2015): The promise of Pier55 has invigorated our community with the hope of what Hudson River Park can bring to our children and our families. In fact, it is rare to see a great […]

Ranters, remember who paid for pavilion! Re: “Coffee Party Brews Citizens United Battle” (news, May 21, 2015): To The Editor: While the Coffee Party and its fellow ranters are boycotting all products made by the Koch Brothers, I’d better not see these aging hippy limousine liberals at Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Museum or seeking medical […]

Carriage horses are not commodities To The Editor: This is a plea, asking Councilmember Corey Johnson to vote for Intro 573, when it comes up for a vote in the City Council. It will, once and for all, ban the carriage horses from New York City. This “tradition” has been around since the mid 1800s. […]

Honey and Vinegar Re “Gloria Sukenick Awarded for Activism” and “Still on Stage at 90”: To The Editor: In the May 7 issue of Chelsea Now is a fascinating comparative juxtaposition of articles describing two 90-year-old women. Each is going against the conventional stereotype of the white-haired old lady, but there the similarity ends. The […]

Decontrol is out of control To the Editor: Re “DCP Pledges Outreach, Provides Rezoning Details” (news, April 9, 2015): As long as vacancy decontrol stands, it is utterly hypocritical of city planners to propose zoning changes to allow developers to build new housing on top of old buildings purportedly to achieve “affordable” units. Every day stabilized […]

Stop the sop To the Editor: The mayor’s new proposal — “Zoning for Quality and Affordability” — is a very poorly disguised sop for real estate developers to pack more height and density into low-rise neighborhoods like ours and the Village. I certainly hope our City Council rep Corey Johnson doesn’t support it. Carolynn Meinhardt […]

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month To The Editor: Since 1997, I’ve tackled the ongoing daily ups-and-downs of my own wholly life-altering traumatic brain injury, caused by Con Edison’s now so-called stray voltage. Much of the media’s limited focus when they cover the more “sensational” incidents emphasize “remarkable recoveries,” “exceptional care” and “vast support.” The […]

Chelsea landmark deserves its own ‘Domain’ To The Editor: Re:“Hopper-Gibbons House in Limbo as Legal Gears Turn” (web news, Feb. 5, 2015): “The 2005 DOB permit was never valid and thus could not be reinstated in any form” — that fact ALONE should rationally put an end to this. BUT NO! If that is STILL […]

Rx for pedestrian crossings Re “Design Innovation Key to Vision Zero Goals” (news, Jan. 29, 2015): To The Editor: As a pedestrian, I fear for my life crossing with the light. A taxi hit me a few years ago — not seriously, but a few of my neighbors were not so lucky. I believe that […]
