Rita Roper, whom without this could not have been made possible writes:
Last night’s community event, “Movie On The Hill” featuring Disney’s 2017 adaptation of “Beauty and The Beast” was a huge success. We are gathering photos to share. Success is never the work of one person but attained when a lot of people all working together achieve a common goal. Very special kudos goes to our Event Director, Lisa Latcholia. Her planning, as usual, is spot-on. Every detail and there were many, was perfect. The R-Y staff makes everything possible and it is valued. DOT’s guidance, set-ups, and pickups were flawless. The music prelude to the movie set the tone for a fun evening. Dave’s careful biker duty attributed to a safe event. To Council Member Ben Kallos, your support in helping to protect James Cagney Place, a community asset for over 40 years, for future generations is outstanding. Last, but not least, the weather…thankful to all the fronts, wind currents, etc. for perfect atmospheric intervention.
Stay tuned for the next one coming Halloween 2017!

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.
