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 […]

Dear editor , Your article about Saving the Joys of Music and Art at the Church Street School really touches on the crisis in the deliberate de-funding, discouraging, music and art courses, (instrument, dance classes and school bands, workshops in all the created visual arts) that I know from personal experience have disappeared from the […]

The Cost of Living in Manhattan

by Leave a Comment

Dear Editor , This letter is a response to your comprehensive, powerful story about the escalating cost of living in an apartment that is making it economically possible for only the wealthy or low income (public housing) residents to live in Manhattan. Another possible niche for affordable, owned housing could be built (or converted?) in […]

Demography In Action: Crime in Lower Manhattan

by Leave a Comment

To the editor: You wrote  (BroadsheetDAILY November 14)  “….793 incidents per 1,000 residents every year. This means that a typical denizen of Lower Manhattan has nearly an 80 percent chance of being unlawfully deprived of at least one piece of valuable property in an average year.” You do realize that lower Manhattan has 4-5 employees […]
