“If you could change one thing about Lower Manhattan what would it be?”

Nick Andreo, 41, community planning U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

I’d like to get the vendors off the streets, they block off all the sidewalks. Mainly down around the Wall St. area, you can’t walk down Broadway without having people selling baseball cards…Not so much the food vendors, but everybody else hawking cellular phone cases on the corner and stuff like that.

Leah,
mother, waiting for school

More parks.

Arnold Alexander,
retired, 57, Nashville, Tenn.

It appears as if there’s always construction going on, every time I go to visit my children and grandchildren that live in the Tribeca area, the roads are always torn up.

Christie, 25, nanny

The quality of air.

Candace Murdock, nanny

I’m trying to think. I don’t know, I love Lower Manhattan.

Stephen Mcloud, 42, psychology professor at Borough of Manhattan Community College

The rent is very high. They’re building too many luxury apartment buildings, and there are too many expensive restaurants.

Caira, 18

Parents walking their kids and using their strollers as buffers.

Rick,
location manager for commercials.

Certain men’s attitudes towards women, as they pass by, you know, it’s kinda gross…I would change men’s perception of how they deal with women around here.
