On March 26, 2022, various electeds, representatives of the mayor, and TA president Susan Steinberg did a walkthrough of the 14th Street and First Avenue corridor. For more than a year, tenants and local business owners have complained about conditions, but despite all efforts, the sidewalk is blocked, the bus stop is obstructed, and conditions are unsanitary, among other issues. Many do not feel safe and are concerned for the safety of the schoolchildren in the area. Following the walkthrough, this letter was sent to Mayor Eric Adams and was signed by Rep. Carolyn Maloney, State Senator Brad Hoylman, Assembly Member Harvey Epstein, and City Council Members Keith Powers and Carlina Rivera. Note: the south side of 14th Street is in Carlina Rivera's district and within the bounds of the NYPD's 9th Precinct.
