LETTERS BPC residents on the BPCA Board

by Leave a Comment

Dear editor: I am glad that some important facts came out at CB1’s BPC committee meeting reported by The BroadsheetDAILY. Most significant, I think, is that with BPC having more residents than Roosevelt Island, there is no excuse not to draw Board Members exclusively from this community! We have an extremely talented and diverse population […]

To the editor: Thank you for the Broadsheet’s continued coverage of the effort to get more local representation on the Battery Park City Authority (BPCA) Board, including Matthew Fenton’s recent “Home Rule, But By Whom?” I appreciate that Community Board 1 is again taking up support for my bill with Assemblymembers Glick and Niou to […]

Impacted Wisdom Truth

RE: BroadsheetDAILY March13, 2017 Impacted Wisdom Truth To the editor: Question: Would it not make more sense to have such a tax go into a special infrastructure fund dedicated to serve a district rather than just earmarked for schools? It is obvious that not only schools are impacted by residential development: Fire; transportation, sanitation, water, […]

A local fascinating lost cultural niche, Tribeca’s Fountain Pen Hospital

To the editor: In an increasingly virally virtual world of seductive enjoyable distraction/ direction/exploration that sometimes diminishes essential human connecting and growth, the real oils, brushes and canvas of personal development (observing, oral sharing, and learning) from the real world around as well as the brand new electronic ones, I would like to share a […]

Flip this Hotel

by Leave a Comment

To the editor: I was very confused by the article below regarding the ‘Flip this Hotel’ (BroadsheetDAILY March 1). You stated Hidrock paid $28 million for the property, which was only the land. You fail to mention the fact Hidrock had to build a hotel on the land and the cost of building the hotel […]

The article asserts that Community Board (CB) 1’s Battery Park City Committee was not briefed on the preliminary results of our South End Avenue Assessment, despite its request. In fact, on […]

To the editor: I have noticed lately that the Allied Barton security guards have been directing pedestrians and traffic at Battery Place and 2nd place during drop off at PS 276. On a recent morning there was one guard on Battery Place as in the attached photo and another standing in front of 2nd Place. […]

To the editor: I simply could not let the letter from the person who signed their letter as “Craig S.” go unanswered. Ms. Glick represents the MAJORITY of the people in her district in terms of her views on family planning issues, and when you’re in the minority, you have to just deal with that. […]

To the editor, I find Jerrold Nadler’s actions so offensive! How many times have other congressmen and senators felt like Nadler. How many have objected to the newly elected president and how many have refused to attend the elected president’s inauguration? Nadler is not worthy of being our congressman and should step down. I just […]
