Lower Manhattan’s Local News
Subvertising Campaign Shocks the Conscience, But Not for Long
On Wednesday morning, two dozen cages fashioned from chain-link fencingappeared on sidewalks at strategic locations around Manhattan and Brooklyn. A pair of these were placed in Lower Manhattan: one on Centre Street, opposite the Municipal Building and close by the Brooklyn Bridge; the other about two blocks away, near the intersection of Broadway and Vesey Streets.
Each one contained a lifelike mannequin, the size of a small child, wrapped in a foil blanket, which bore a disturbing resemblance to a shroud. From around the edges of these blankets, locks of hair and smalls pair of shoes were visible. Concealed within every cage was also a rudimentary audio system that repeatedly played a track of a small child sobbing. This was interspersed with the sound of a heartbeat.
These installations together comprised a guerrilla art piece titled “#NoKidsInCages,” which was conceived, fabricated, and surreptitiously placed at carefully chosen points in the hours before sunrise. Among the collaborators on the project the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), a non-profit that provides free and legal and social services to immigrant children, families, and refugees.
RAICES was assisted by an advertising agency, Badger and Winters, which is known for provocative, issued-oriented media campaigns. All of the locations for the cages were at heavily trafficked tourist sites (the Centre Street cage was near the pedestrian approach to the Brooklyn Bridge), or the offices of media companies (the cage Broadway and Vesey was in front of the headquarters of Refinery29, a digital media and entertainment company focused on young women). Locations elsewhere in Manhattan included the front doors of the New York Times and Fox News.
On the outside of each enclosure was a sign bearing a litany of disturbing facts: more than 3,000 small children have been separated from their parents while attempting to enter the United States illegally; they spend an average of 154 days apart from the mothers and fathers; six have died while in custody. (The soundtrack of weeping children, it turns out, was tape obtained by investigative reporting organization ProPublica of actual toddlers detained by the U.S. Border Patrol, crying out for their parents.)
As the morning rush hour got under way, the Police Department’s 911 call center received hundreds of notifications that crying children were trapped in metal enclosures around New York. Responding officers quickly determined that no actual child was in danger, but took significantly longer to figure out what to do with the Cages. Some were broken apart with crowbars and hacksaws. Others were lifted off the sidewalk by tow trucks.
The RAICES/Bader and Winters collaboration may mark a return to a tradition of New York street art that hovers somewhere between iconoclastic and seditious. Superficially, it resembles that maneuver that surprised the City by placing the “Fearless Girl” statue at Bowling Green in March, 2017. But that was done with the secret blessing of City Hall at the behest of a financial services conglomerate.
On another level, the Cages caper is more closely akin to the epic prank played by sculptor Arturo Di Modica in 1989, when he secretly (and illegally) deposited his bronze “Charging Bull” statue in front of the New York Stock Exchange in the middle of the night. As with the Cages, “Charging Bull” was initially seized and removed by police, although public support subsequently led to it being reinstalled (this time with official approval) at Bowling Green.
But there appears to be little likelihood that the Cages will welcomed back to New York’s streetscape. In this context, the piece perhaps belongs to a different New York tradition of street aesthetic, embodied by self-styled vandals such as Keith Haring and Banksy, whose art was meant to provoke and then to disappear.

Brewer Hosts Town Hall Meeting on de Blasio Jail Plan
Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer hosts a Town Hall meeting to give constituents a chance to advise her about whether to support or oppose the plan by Mayor Bill de Blasio to build a new, 1.2 million-square-foot jail complex on White Street, slated to rise 45 stories and house more than 1,400 prisoners.
The City’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) entails six steps for any proposed use of publicly owned land.
A Cenotaph for the Esplanade
Cuomo Announces List of Possible Locations in Battery Park City for Hurricane Maria Memorial
At Sunday’s Puerto Rican Day Parade, Governor Andrew Cuomoannounced that his administration is pushing ahead with plans for a memorial to Hurricane Maria — the cataclysmic storm that claimed more than 3,000 lives in Puerto Rico in September, 2017 — which will be located in Battery Park City.
Mr. Cuomo’s office also announced Sunday that his administration has narrowed the potential sites for such a memorial within Battery Park City down to six possibilities.
New Installation at World Trade Center Cultivates Symbols of Remembrance and Renewal
A bit of wisdom often attributed to Confucius holds that, “if your plan is for one year, plant rice. If your plan is for ten years, plant trees. If your plan is for one hundred years, educate children.”
By this yardstick, Lower Manhattan, where half a dozen high-performing schools have opened in recent years, has the century plan covered, and is doing reasonably well in the decennial stakes, with hundreds of trees flourishing along the Esplanade, in the Battery, and around the World Trade Center campus. But Downtown has been woefully deficient on a per-annum basis — until now.
On Thursday, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (which manages the World Trade Center complex) unveiled Rice Paddy — a living, growing installation that will incubate five varieties of rice between now and the Harvest Moon Festival in late September, when dozens of chefs will gather at the site to create unique, original dishes designed to be an homage to rice.

To the editor,
I really appreciate Gail Brewer and Margaret Chin for standing up for the people of my community. We are hard working people that don’t deserve to be crunched out by high rise buildings that no one will be able to afford to live in.
Don’t we deserve space, sunlights and a say as to what our community should look like?
To the Editor,
Since the GPTA Rally for Rent Stabilization ended abruptly when the skies opened up, I did not get the chance to express my gratitude to many and to convey some important information.
On behalf of GPTA and all of Gateway, I want to express our sincere gratitude to Congressman Nadler, City Comptroller Scott Stringer, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, and Council Member Margaret Chin for joining us at the rally and standing with us in solidarity (and in the rain).
I would also like to acknowledge the GPTA Board. We all we are all so fortunate to have an Executive Committee with vast knowledge and expertise working for us…
1stVP- Robin Forst, Secretary- Jeff Galloway. Treasurer- Karlene Wiese (who has served longer than anyone in the history of GPTA). We are also so fortunate to have Board members with a variety of talents and strengths and most of all commitment….Honey Berk, Sarah Cassell, Audrey Comisky, Larry Emert, Pat Gray, Howard Grossman, Bruce Katz, Steve Kessler and Ninfa Segarra.
Without the help of the Battery Park City Authority, BJ Jones, Eric Munson, Nick Sbordone, Nidia Reeder, and the wonderful staff at BPCParks, this rally would not have been possible. Thank you.
As for next steps, GPTA urges you to STAY ENGAGED!
If you are not already a member, join GPTA (gpta.org), follow us on Twitter and Facebook, write letters, make calls, attend meetings of CB1 and
make your voice heard.
If you want to stay up-to-date on what is happening, please take a moment and email the words, “I’M IN” to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will keep you informed of any updates and let you know what you can do to help.
At Sunday’s rally, there was a sign on the stage which read “We built this (BP)City.” Like many of you, I have lived in Gateway for almost 30 years and I know that it is and has always been the anchor of Battery Park City.
We believe that Stabilization = Community and there is no other community quite like our Gateway community. The Rent Stabilization Agreement must be preserved and extended for all. I think we can agree, living in Gateway is like living in a small town. And in my opinion, it is the best small town in the Big Apple.
Thank you all… let’s keep up the fight!!!
To the Editor:
The article, “Pupil Protection,” published April 1, 2019, notes the unfortunate shortage of School Crossing Guards (SCGs) in our area, especially at and around PS89 in Battery Park City. It’s been two months since the article appeared, and there seem to still be no “permanent” crossing guards for PS89.
As a parent, every day I see the dangers to our kids posed by irresponsible drivers creeping into crosswalks at red lights, blocking crosswalks with their vehicles, out-of-state cars illegally turning right-on-red, and others speeding to make green or yellow lights; that’s in addition to equally irresponsible bicycle riders heading the wrong way on streets, careening through red lights, riding on sidewalks, and speeding recklessly along the West Street bikeway. I would love to see multiple SCGs posted at the intersections around PS89 (and other schools). It would especially be nice to have local residents as crossing guards since they would have a familiarity with the neighborhood, and also have a more heightened and direct interest in its safety.
For anyone interested, our NYPD Neighborhood Coordination Officers can be contacted with questions at 212-334-6462, or email@example.com (Officer Bodden) and firstname.lastname@example.org (Officer Tasoren).
Also, there is an online registration at: https://www1.nyc.gov/site/nypd/careers/civilians/school-crossing-guard.page.

‘A Thumb in the Eye’
Local Leaders Don’t Want One Broadway to Get Any Bigger
Community Board 1 (CB1) is resisting plans to add two floors to a landmarked building in the Financial District. In a resolution laced with unusually harsh language, enacted at its May 28 meeting, the Board called upon the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) — which can veto alterations to legally protected historic structures — to reject a proposal by the building’s owner, Midtown Equities, to build a glass pavilion on top of One Broadway (also known as the International Mercantile Marine Company Building), located at the corner of Broadway and Battery Place, directly adjacent to Bowling Green.
The resolution summarizes the developer’s proposal with the words, “to distill the very convoluted design’s description, and despite all the narrative hoopla, it is really a preposterous glass box with a mansard surround.”

This proposed federal measure would renew and make permanent the Victim Compensation Fund that was created by a 2011 law, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, which was renewed in 2015.

The advertising barges that have become a pet bête noire for Lower Manhattan residents were the focus of a discussion at the April 23 meeting of Community Board 1 , where Paul Goldstein, who chairs that panel’s Waterfront, Parks, & Cultural Committee, offered an update, saying, “those floating billboards that you’ve seen on both the east and west sides — the good news is that the City is cracking down on them. Both the Mayor and the Council say they find it unacceptable. So they are imposing fines and enacting laws to restrict it.” To read more…

Although Not Yet a Shore Thing, Proposal for Brooklyn Bridge Beach Takes a Step Forward
After multiple rounds of funding since 2013, the proposed Brooklyn Bridge Beach — a project supported by elected officials, community leaders, and the public — may be inching closer to reality.
The plan, backed by all of these constituencies, aims to create a crescent-shaped wedge of sand along the East River waterfront, just north of the South Street Seaport, where park-goers could wade knee deep in tide. If built, it would become the sole access point at which Lower Manhattan residents could step into the water that surrounds them, rather than merely looking at it.
