May 31, 2013- DNAinfo is reporting, “Hundreds of news racks should be immediately removed from the Upper West Side because they are poorly maintained and clog the streets, local community board members said. Community Board 7 member Marc Glazer has made the elimination of news racks — the plastic boxes full of free literature and news that sit on street corners — his pet project this past year, researching ways to make the city take action to remove them.
The proposal to remove the racks passed unanimously at the transportation committee meeting Wednesday night. It will be reviewed at the full board meeting June 4.”
