The mayor gets it.

As hundreds rallied in Jackson Heights and Corona on Saturday to demand that the city permanently close the 34th Avenue open street to cars, State Senator Jessica Ramos revealed to Streetsblog that Mayor de Blasio is "amenable" to the community's argument.

Ramos spoke with the mayor on Friday about a number of topics — "one of which was the pressing issue of making our 34th Avenue open street permanent," she said. "He was very amenable and positive and very receptive of our community's arguments, so we are looking forward to a positive outcome."
