Soon It Will Be Too Late… To The Editor Re: “Do Something Meaningful For Supermarkets” (Talking Point by Kirsten Theodos, April 13): When Ruth Messinger was the Upper West Side councilperson, she helped create the small Business Task Force.

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.
