In her letter she states that Liberty Park is not “the Memorial” but an urban pedestrian boulevard. Why can’t it be both? The sphere is not so large that it will impede the physical flow of people […]

Dear Editor, Ron Dowd is correct in his observation of the complete disregard that the Safety Ambassadors show to the regulations of Battery Park City and the safety of children and small animals.
