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. As every resident here is aware, as were the PEP officers, the upper deck of the esplanade is NOT for bicycles. I […]

Dear editor: Yesterday’s BroadsheetDaily (Tues., 6/7/2016) has a great photo of an Allied Barton BPC Ambassador riding his bike on the sidewalk. I’ve seen these guys ride the wrong direction in the bike lanes, as well as on the BPC Ballfields field level walkway while kids, parents, and nannies are there for practices and general play time. […]

It is long past time when the community needs to start considering a class action suit against the BPCA, the State of New York, Governor Cuomo, Brookfield and IGY to enforce the community’s right to access to the public parkland resources that Brookfield supposedly promised to ensure as part of its winning bid for the […]

To the editor: It (“City Council Hears Testimony On Water Street Arcade Proposal” May 5BroadsheetDAILY) sounds like nothing has stopped the land barons from converting their arcades except a charitable handout or a $$,$$$,$$$ present from the city.

To the editor: The recent investigation into a multitude of campaign contributions and much more alone should stop this madness.
