To the editor: The circus atmosphere of the Stiller Run in the Battery Park City and surrounding area, totally incongruous near the National Sept. 11th Memorial, made Sunday Sept. 25 an awful day for me as a resident, and was a distressing sign of what a pathetic culture we have become. Plenty of unsung heroes […]

To the editor, In light of the recent events around Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna I have thought long and hard about highly contentious cases I have covered for over 25 years as a court artist for various news media organizations. Many cases, including: John Delorean, Central Park Jogger, Raymond Donovan and others have been sensationalized […]

To the editor: Our environment, health, and economy are threatened by our dependence on fossil fuels. Thankfully, New York is taking steps to transition to renewable energy to protect our environment and health, create jobs and rebuild our economy. New York has a goal of meeting 45 percent of the state’s electricity needs with renewable energy and […]

To the editor: Re: “D.I.D. takes district leaders slots” (Downtown Express article, Sept. 21) Comments made last week by the losing candidate for male district leader in the 64th Assembly District, Part C, Jeff Galloway, and others attribute his defeat to gerrymandering.

 To the Editor: Re: Support the Chinatown B.I.D. (Downtown Express editorial, July 20) and This B.I.D. could be BAD (Downtown Express letter to the editor, Sept. 14) The Chinatown B.I.D.’s motto is “Let us help ourselves.” We think: Yes, they want to help themselves — to our money — in the form of tax assessments on properties and […]

To the Editor: Micah Halpern’s “Talking Point” piece in the Sept. 7-13 issue echoes the self-serving, jingoistic line promoted by President Bush after 9/11, that the “terrorists hate us because of our freedom.” There is no excuse for the horrific, evil acts of the 9/11 terrorists, but it can’t be denied that many of the […]

To the editor: Re: One W.T.C.’s many meanings, some visible and some not (Downtown Express article, Aug. 31) Aline Reynolds’s article on the World Trade Center, about its “many meanings and the symbolism and sustainability that define the building,” just tells readers its shape, structure and design and fails to give any historical and political […]

To the Editor: Re: Revised BID prop still hot” (Downtown Express news article, Aug. 3) I see from recent “letters to the editor” that the B.I.D. has finally “recruited” some supporters after SoHo residents have been challenging it for months. These supporters neglect to see that the “inclusiveness” in decision-making that the B.I.D. board promises […]

To the Editor: I didn’t go by the Kardashians’ event, but I heard from residents it was a zoo. Paulie D. spinning for those two is East Coast reality T.V. trash famous for doing absolutely nothing of worth, entertaining West Coast reality T.V. trash famous for doing absolutely nothing of worth. DJ’ing is a talent, and […]

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. Within blocks of Councilmember Margaret Chin’s and the Chinatown Partnership’s offices, there are still vacant storefronts since the post-9/11 closure of Park Row. The same leadership would be at the helm […]
