Don’t Miss it : Monday is the day we have been working toward for the last 6 years. Note the new room to accommodate the larger crowd we expect.
- Will we get a fully protected pedestrian crossing on the south leg of the 42nd Street and 9th Avenue intersection? What about the north leg of the 42nd Street and 8th Avenue intersection?
- Will we get less buses across residential streets and around the Bus terminal
- Will we get less Lincoln Tunnel queuing on 9th Avenue?
- Will we get more green spaces and plaza?
