On a roll against graffiti with see-through gates

The Daily News quoted Senator Gianaris in a story on the new roll-down gates required for storefronts, an initiative led by Councilmember Vallone.

Solid, rolldown security gates around the city may become a thing of the past - but not overnight.

A new city law, sponsored by Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria), went into effect last Friday and will require that all new rolldown gates must provide at least 70% visibility through the storefront window.

But business owners who currently have solid metal gates will have until 2026 to replace those with the higher-visibility ones.

Text of Senator Jose R. Peralta's Remarks To Have Been Delivered In Explaining Vote For Marriage Equality

"The eyes of history and a higher power are upon us here today. Let them see that the time has finally arrived when the State of New York recognizes a loving commitment between two men or two women. Let them see that the day has come when common sense and human decency are the law in New York. And let them see that we are men and women of integrity and fairness. For if they see these things from us, they will look favorably on this chamber’s actions today. Just as my children will look back when they’re older and be proud of their father. On this, the most important vote of my career to this point, perhaps the most important vote I will ever make, I say yes."

SENATOR FUSCHILLO’S INDEPENDENCE DAY MESSAGE

"Today, we celebrate the birth of our country and honor the ideal which makes America the greatest of all nations; freedom. Freedom is what makes America a beacon of hope for so many in the world. It brought families from all over the globe to our shores in search of a better life. Right now, people in other countries are fighting and dying for the freedoms we’ve been privileged to have for so very long. We must never forget that these freedoms do not come free. Generations of American men and women defended them against tyranny, oppression, and evil.
