Build anew for tech To The Editor: Re “Tech check” (editorial, Feb. 28): I feel like the approach to zoning in this editorial unfortunately privileges neighborhood aesthetics over what goes on in our neighborhoods. We need to recognize that the tech companies are already here, and that they are wealthy. They will do business where […]

Don’t ‘L’-ose momentum To The Editor: Re ‘Post-‘L-pocalypse’” (editorial, Feb. 14) I find The Villager’s editorial piece on the post-L-train “shutdown” hugely confusing…frustrating, too. New York City is America’s greatest pedestrian city, and — after an eternity of insidious Moses-ism — is reimagining that title, with spectacular transit and foot-and-bike-centered improvements unspooling everywhere across 14th […]

Politicians on open space To The Editor: In an age where science proves the necessity to humans of regular exposure to the natural world, we are about to lose the last of our ground-level open spaces in the latest land grab of the real estate frenzy of the past 20 years. Proponents of the Elizabeth […]

A well-deserved salute To The Editor: Re “Village doyenne Doris Diether turns 90! Feted by friends at Judson bash” (news article, Jan. 17): What a magnificent and well-deserved salute to Doris Diether, a mainstay of Greenwich Village and and our resident expert on zoning. It was a pleasure working with her in the late ’70s […]

Marcus doesn’t speak for us To The Editor: Re “An open letter to City Council Speaker Corey Johnson” (Viewpoint, by David Marcus, Jan. 10): David Marcus is not a member of the 14th St. Coalition Steering Committee and has not been involved with the Coalition for some time. We want to be clear, his “Open […]

Ch-ch-changes To The Editor: I live on E. Sixth St. and walk to Astor Place. I could not understand why so many stores were vacant on the uptown, East Side corner of Third Ave. and St Mark’s. It seems that demolition is to take place. The Continental Bar is now closed, too. The old apartment […]
