Thanks for hearing us To The Editor: Re “Soho BID needs work” (editorial, Nov. 3): We are very grateful to you for running the editorial in opposition to the business improvement district.

r Eyewitness to mass arrests To The Editor: Re “Demonstrators take to the [Wall] street” (news article, Sept. 22): Sept. 24 was a normal Saturday morning for me.

Stripped and searching for answers To The Editor: Re “N.Y.U. wants Parks to own two of the superblock strips” (news article, Sept. 15): “Under the plan, N.Y.U. will be opening up the massive interior courtyard of its northern superblock to public access.” This is typical misleading N.Y.U.-speak.
