Feedback from Facebook Re: “CB4 Hears TransAlt’s 14th St. Plan” (website news posting, Oct. 20, 2016): It is a horrible plan! The traffic which goes down 14th St. will shift to 15th and 16th Sts.

Stand Up for Our Neighborhood Stores To The Editor: Attention all elected officials! The time has come to get commercial rent regulations at the top of the agenda! The newest reason? The art supply store on W. 27th St. across from FIT. This  longtime tenant is about to close its doors. The reason? Its rent of $3,000 […]

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 […]

Bravo for the Blotter To The Editor: My wife and I are delighted by Sean Egan’s Police Blotter column in Chelsea Now.
