Speaking Out Against 16th Street Overdevelopment

On April 6, I was proud to join Save 16th Street, the West 100 16th Street Block Association, and Save Chelsea, along with Assembly Member Richard Gottfried and Council Member Corey Johnson in rallying against the proposed 11-story, mid-block development at 124 and 126-128 West 16th Street. Previously, I joined with Assembly Member Gottfried and Council Member Johnson in writing to the Einhorn Development Group to request that it reconsider its plans. The mass of the building will severely undermine the low-rise character of the neighborhood, while depriving many of the surrounding residents of vital light and air. Please see our letter below.
