D.O.T.: The new R. Moses To The Editor: Re “Judge blocks 14th St. busway” (news article, July 4): We are absolutely delighted with Judge Rackower’s fair and reasonable decision to grant our request for a temporary restraining order and to compel Commissioner Polly Trottenberg and her Department of Transportation to support their claims of essential […]

Police Blotter and race To The Editor: As a resident of Chelsea, I take exception to your “Black Corner” a.k.a. Police Blotter/Crime-Stoppers Hotline, wherein you, courtesy of the N.Y.P.D., routinely identify the “race” of criminal suspects, above and beyond the photos you may run with the narratives about the perps.
