To the editor, It’s unfortunate that Mr. Shapiro (CEO & President of Ballyhoo Media) seems to equate a floating LED billboard with the vinyl wraps seen on some of the harbor ferries. I think that most folks who live along the rivers would probably disagree with him on that…..but would agree that he picked an […]

To All: My dear friends and neighbors  – I have been on Community Board 1 for almost 30 years. At this point in my ‘community board life’, I have gained the experience to help on the development of parks, water front, traffic safety and of course, schools and youth programs. Honestly, I don’t have time […]

To the editor: RE: The Felicity of the Commons ( BroadsheetDAILY, October 9 ) Some of the suggested improvements already exist a very short walk north in Hudson River Park: for example, a kayak pier and tennis courts. Obviously, there is never enough of any of nature’s gifts. The one thing everyone needs and can use […]
