At the September 2nd CB1 meeting, the topic of the dangerous Liberty Street/West Street crossing came up. One aspect of that is the lack of a taxi stand for the visitors, and many of them hail cabs on the busy West Side Highway.

CB1 member Jeff Galloway, a partner at Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP, spoke up. He suggested that signs could be used to direct the thousands of visitors to use the taxi stand in BPC by Gateway Plaza.

    Welcome tourists!

    Enjoy the stifling stench of urine from Galloway’s dogs on that corner!

    He’s a community leader!

    With that horrid smell by Gateway Plaza? It’s embarrassing!

    Maybe they will clean the area for the tourist. Dogs and tourist are far more important than rent paying tenants.

    Dog owners here are crazy.

    One asked me to move the other day so his dog could pee. Yes. Pee.

    I was there until the last ten minutes when it became clear that the discussion on rent regulation was going to be very truncated.

    I found the discussion (and turn out) on boat noise informative, but wordier than it needed to be.

    This kind of topic is what BPC Committee specializes in. But it is telling that it takes sonic boom type issues to land residents at one of these meetings at all.

    Why the topic of Street Cafes was put on that particular night’s agenda, I can’t figure out.

    I thought that Gale Brewer had an agenda to revise the Community Boards – they have become self-complacent shills for local politicians and do not actually represent the community in many cases.
