BAD CYCLING BEHAVIOR

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

To the Editor: Regarding Bunny Abraham’s letter to the editor (“Peds Need Better Advocate”), I am troubled by Ms. Abraham’s conclusion that the specific illegal cyclist behavior she witnessed means that Transportation Alternatives must somehow condone this behavior and/or is doing nothing to try and discourage it. Ms. Abraham’s statement is incorrect: as an organization, [&hellip

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

To the Editor: Regarding the letter from Peter Goldwasser of Transportation Alternatives to Bette Dewing (“Efforts for Pedestrians,” Nov. 6)—first, I would like to applaud Bette Dewing for her years of hard work as an activist on issues such as noise, bikes and the community.

EFFORTS FOR PEDESTRIANS

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

Dear Ms. Dewing: I’d like to answer a question from your recent column in which you ask why so many elected officials consult with Transportation Alternatives regarding pedestrian safety (“A Café Closing on 79th,” Oct. 16).
