A.G. doing A-O.K. To The Editor: Re “E. Eighth St. tenants are suing Croman over ‘harassment’ ” (news article, Aug. 21): Eric Schneiderman may be one of the few Albany guys who seem to be guided by conscience.

Fight has only begun To The Editor: Re “Li wins a third term to lead C.B. 3, beats Marlow by 31 to 15” (news article, June 26): Thirty-one to 15 sounds like a big loss. It really wasn’t. Several months ago, a group of us, members of Community Board 3, got together because we were […]

Who’s running the show? To The Editor: Re “Pier 40 M.O.U. is still M.I.A., but suit could appear soon” (news article, May 29): If Gale Brewer hasn’t seen the agreement, that means her reps on the Hudson River Park Trust board of directors haven’t seen it.

Tower was the issue To The Editor: Re “Holy tweet!” (Scoopy’s Notebook, May 29): Pastor Winnie Varghese’s tweet would give the misimpression that the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation was advocating for the preservation of the parking lot on the St. Luke’s campus.

Letters, Week of May 29, 2014

Gathering of the facts To The Editor: Re “Response to senior’s murder recalls infamous case” (news article, May 22): After careful review of Gerard Flynn’s May 22nd article in The Villager, I would like to clarify a couple points.  First, since I am legally blind, I certainly did not see the person who was attacked […]
