I have lived in Yorkville for 30 plus years and watched the neighborhood go from a sparsely populated quiet neighborhood to a highrise overgrowth. The ONLY solace left is this pedestrian plaza where children can safely bike and roller skate and adults can sit under a tree and read. We have about 6 people that would love to learn Mah Jong. Can you please let me know how we can plan this.
We are all working people and available evenings only.
YOU ARE ALL DOING A GREAT JOB FOR OUR COMMUNITY. I HAVE LIVED HERE 30 YEARS AND BROUGHT MY ONE AND ONLY DAUGHTER UP HERE, AND SHE LOVED GROWING UP HERE.
All over the city, more and more pedestrian plazas are being erected. Why would this one be removed?? It’s one of the rare areas like this on the UES. Nice to have an area where parents can relax outside while their kids play in the fresh air. This would only discourage kids to be outside! Is this what we want? Would opening this street up change the congestion going from east to west? I doubt it. An absurd idea to remove this pedestrian plaza.
A pedestrian way is an essential place for older people in the neighborhood who have trouble crossing streets and avenues because of traffic. I wholeheartedly support keeping it as it is.
