Re OPINION: Commuters brace for one L of a mess (Aug. 24)

“Let’s not forget that the 7 and G and so on are also about to be inundated over by Long Island City. This New World of about 15 massive skyscrapers by that giant train hub (at the 59th St. Bridge) will definitely add burden to those lines.” — KEVINIZON

Re Councilmember Levin will seek tweaks to 80 Flatbush development plan (Aug. 14)


“The lot with the garden will still be in shadow if the building is cut down to 300 feet because its right across the street. Cutting it to 600 feet will make no difference to the garden. In any case, the garden will still receive a lot of sunlight from the east.” — MICHAEL M.

Re Arborist fired after slamming Brooklyn Botanic Garden for removing tree (Aug. 13)

“Sad day for the BBG when an experienced arborist has to argue with his boss to save a tree! Underneath, at the root, there seems to be a damaging communication split between management and staff. One would think that they both spoke the same language.” — ROBERTO GAUTIER

Re City looks at re-developing Coney Island’s Abe Stark Rink (Aug. 6)

“Keep the ice skating rink, just build a glass dome over it, so that when people walk by in the summer they can see people ice skating in there on a hot summer day. It will draw them in.

“It can also then still be open in the winter time, and the skaters can see the ocean when they skate. It would be beautiful.” — CONEYISLANDBABY75
