To the editor: Greater Riverdale residents are fortunate to have one of the greenest areas in New York City. Depressing facts on extinction and record-breaking heat temperatures are anxiety-provoking for everyone. There is a cure — and it is available. more
To the editor: (re: “Pro-BDS rants have a ring of familiarity to them,” “Who are the real villains here?” Aug. 11) In their recent postings, Charles Moerdler and Aryeh Jeselsohn take me to task regarding boycott, divestment and sanctions, as well as antisemitism. Unfortunately and conveniently, they don’t really address the issues I raised.  more
To the editor: (re: “Putnam Trail is a nightmare,” Sept. 1) In their recent letter about the Putnam Trail, Debbi Dolan and Matt Turov correctly describe the dangerous conflicts that occur on the Van Cortlandt Park trail among walkers, runners, bicyclists and illegal motorcyclists.  more
To the editor: (re: “Streets are just too dangerous,” Aug. 11) Richard Serviss’ letter resonated with me.  It is an often stressful, terrifying experience for … more

I am referring to the so-called Putnam Greenway, which is in actuality a nature trail turned into an asphalt road in the park for more than a mile from the Mill Pond to the Yonkers border, where it connects to the South County Trailway. more
To the editor: (re: “Green energy has failed so far,” July 28) I am “somewhat” corrected by the editor’s note that was included with my last letter. The big … more
