The Bike Threat

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

To the Editor: Bunny Abraham says, “[N]ot only should bikers…have some type of lighting so that they can be seen in the dark…but I also feel they should be licensed as motorcycles so they can be identified” (letter, May 21).

More School Specifics From Mayoral Candidates

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

To the Editor: I applaud the in-depth answers the mayoral candidates gave in Shaydi Raice Sigall’s May 21 article, “The Mayor’s Race: Focus on Education.” There are two issues I want to address. First, the success of charter schools is still in debate and all mayoral candidates, except Tony Avella, support them. I am concerned [&hellip

Bikes Need Regulation

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

To the Editor: Bette Dewing is to be applauded for the many years she has tried to right wrongs (Dewing Things Better, “The Right Kind of Light,” May 14). I am writing about the bike situation.

SCHOOL CLOSURE LACKED TRANSPARENCY

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

To the Editor: The lack of Department of Education transparency is extremely frustrating (“‘D’-Grade Middle School to Close,” Dec. 11). Every decision they make this way causes suspicion and bad feelings. They HAD to know this school would be closing when they made their rezoning and school move decisions (if they didn’t, or only some [&hellip

BIKE SAFETY

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

To the Editor: Reckless bicycle riding remains the number-one complaint to the police on the Upper West Side. When bike riders comply with the law, they will earn the respect of pedestrians. But until that time comes, some of us will continue to pursue the possibility of licenses and other forms of identification on bikes. [&hellip
