What missing here is the impact in redistributing to other streets what a safety valve this inset is. Show the congestion during school hours on 79th street, which led, in some part to a serious accident yesterday. Also show the impact on the two preK schools involved here. People are already stating on this site and others that we have a big supply of benches already.

 Full disclosure please, with all sides covered (79th & 77th sts) when this so vital? 100yds is added to the park.

Wrong.  More streets are not the answer to pedestrian safety.

again, it's the NRA model: more cars make pedestrians safer, much like more guns make children safer.

I do hope the protest will be successful.

Perhaps the organizers can indicate here for what folks on the forum might do...who to contact and how...to further the cause of more park.  Because, yes, more park is better than less park. That's for sure.

  Yipee, let the election cycle begin! Let's see who puts this on their resume first...but seriously thanks for the help in who
to contact if you also have a different opinion in how this inset fits into the traffic pattern. Concerning two schools with tiny
kids and the existing 30yr business on an oil contaminated field, am sure there are some who feel like this is a very bad
idea, like myself and number of posters online here.
 
 Other voices are welcome in healthy debates, aren't they?

are you, perhaps, running for office? on a platform of more cars, more vehicular access?

just checking.
