Believe it or not, progress in Albany

BY Daniel Squadron

I know that many people will be surprised to read about Albany in the “Progress Report.”

And I understand why.  In my two years representing Lower Manhattan in the State Senate, there have been some real disappointments: the Senate “coup,” the worst budget crisis since World War II, and the ongoing need to pass ethics reform, marriage equality, tenant protections and more.

But even through these challenges, we have been able to plant the seeds of reform.  It is a story of progress made, with much still left to do.

Responding to Apparent Homophobic Attacks in Chelsea and Greenwich Village

October 2010 was marred by reports of three apparent hate crimes perpetuated in Greenwich Village and Chelsea in which the victims were perceived to be gay men. In response to each of the attacks, my office has been working with the Manhattan District Attorney's office, the New York City Anti-Violence Project (AVP), and NYPD Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender liaison Tim Duffy to ensure that those who are responsible are brought to justice.Hate and prejudice of any kind are unacceptable in New York City or anywhere, but there is a heightened injustice that these apparently anti-gay attacks occurred in Chelsea and Greenwich Village, neighborhoods with their long-standing connections to the LGBT community.

Addressing Alleged Gang Activity and Violence in Hell's Kitchen

Earlier this fall, a number of Hell's Kitchen residents notified my staff about suspected gang activity and violence, particularly around Matthews-Palmer Playground on West 45 Street between Ninth and Tenth Avenues. In response, my office reached out to the New York Police Department's (NYPD) Midtown North Precinct, which has since stationed a uniformed officer outside the playground, and continued to patrol other locations where incidents have been reported. I want to thank the Midtown North Precinct for its swift attention to this matter as well as its participation along with NYPD's 10th Precinct in a community meeting to address concerns regarding increased violence in Hell's Kitchen.

Rat Attack!

Although the constituents in the 30th senatorial district vary ethnically, culturally and economically, they all encounter the same chronic rat problem whenever they use the subway system.  Most people have a visceral reaction to rats, but that alone is not why we must make every effort to rid them from our subways.
