  • Accessible Ped Signals: another example of how CBs can play a constructive role in managing and explaining progressive change in our streetscape and transportation infrastructure, with the right leadership.   Kudos to Chuck Warren and Scott Falk for turning around one of the most backward-looking Transpo Committees in Manhattan into a forward-looking community forum. 

    As for the “conflict” journalism by DNA, there’s an inevitable tension between quality and sophistication when you’re doing micro-local coverage in a city as big as New York.  On balance, I’m glad they’re out there reporting on these issues, giving transparency to the CB process.  But the comment about the anonymous resident needing to sleep is laughable…move out of New York City if you can’t sleep with street noise!
