To the Editor: Re: “Support the Chinatown B.I.D.” (Downtown Express editorial, July 20) Years of the L.M.D.C.-funded Chinatown Partnership has not made business better in Chinatown.

Soho is very established. So, B.I.D., go to another NYC neighborhood with empty storefronts and small business. Help them. 3 Soho residents do not need your […]

(Downtown Express editorial, July 20) We, the Chinatown B.I.D. opponents, do not believe the Chinatown B.I.D. steering committee’s claim that everyone will be paying a small amount for large benefits. Their own formation documents lay the keys to their power and their ability to increase their collection […]

To the editor: Re: “E.R. and hospital still needed at St. Vincent’s site” (talking point, by Alan Gerson, Aug. 4) I commend you on your editorial courage in printing Alan Gerson’s talking point.
