CHEKPEDS activists earn praises from Elected Officials

At the Walkie Award Ceremony, our elected officials were generous of their time and praises for our work to improve pedestrian safety in the neighborhood ;

Council Member Corey Johnson, Borough President Gale Brewer and Manhattan Community Board 4 Chair, Delores Rubin  joined us , while Senator Hoylman, Assembly Member Gottfried and Rosenthal sent emissaries since they were retained in Albany as the legislature – such as it is –  was still in session. Comptroller Scott Stringer and Congressman Jerry Nadler were also represented.


Dan Tepfer played the piano. A remarkable musician” in the words of the Washington Post and one “who refuses to set himself limits”- a mantra we certainly embrace, as he showed in his “Goldberg Variations /Variations”  an album which received broad praise from the New York Times. He has won several Awards at the Montreux Jazz Festival and others; his recent soundtrack for the independent feature “Movement and Location” was voted Best Original Score at the 2014 Brooklyn Film Festival. Dan uses a bicycle as transportation.
