letters GOOD BARGAIN? To the Editor: Anyone having recently ridden on the 1956 vintage Manhattan 42nd Street cross-town bus had a great trip down memory lane. It was a time when bus drivers had to make change and drive at the same time. No one dared bring any food on the bus or leave any litter [&hellip

Still Wild I’ve seen this woman around 85th/86th Street (“Wild Woman of 77th Street,” July 26), and not only does she spit, she also screams at the top of her lungs. It’s one of the worst screams that I’ve ever heard. After hours, she stands in the Bank of America on Lexington Avenue and hacks [&hellip

sugar and plumm 5 No Plumm Deal To the Editor: I do not know where John Jeannopoulos got the idea that Sugar and Plumm was “granted a sidewalk café permit prior to opening” (Letter, Sept. 27). As a member of the Business and Consumer Issues Committee of Community Board 7, I can assure him no such thing occurred. The [&hellip

Show Compassion To the Editor: I know another woman who feeds the pigeons in front of her apartment building and across the street from a church (“Pigeon Lady Flap on 92nd Street”). That woman is lonely and has told me that without “her” birds, she would have nothing. Maybe neighbors should show a little compassion [&hellip

MAYORS_OFFICE_7536482698_5 copy Life in a Box To the Editor: The city’s recent plan that was noted in your paper (“Living Large?” Aug. 9) to make tiny 275-square-foot apartments for singles seems outrageous. Why not go even further and make street apartments for the homeless? These could consist of large refrigerator or sofa boxes with a battery-operated hot [&hellip

Life in a Box To the Editor: I was extremely disappointed to see Our Town (“Could You Live Here?” Aug. 9) not just reporting, but essentially hyping, the downgrade or waiver of current zoning regulation minimums for rental apartments from 400 to 300 square feet for “micro units,” even if such a policy is endorsed [&hellip

Gillibrand_1 Political Opportunist  To the Editor: Kirsten Gillibrand is a political hack and opportunist if ever there was one. (“Why Kirsten Gillibrand Could Have It All,” July 26). She shamelessly scouts for headlines to jump on and take what her handlers advise are “populist” positions. An example is Gillibrand jumping on the “Miracle in the Hudson” [&hellip

To The Editor: Bicycles in a crowded, large city should never go fast (“Pedestrians, Bicyclists Need to Get Along,” Oct. 14). Is it a race, or is it recreation that takes place while others—young children, pedestrians, mothers with infants—are also enjoying the scene? By the way, the mere fact pedestrians get into the bike lanes [&hellip
