  1. While I fully support re-cobbling (is that a word?) Staples St, it is an active street used for deliveries and access to buildings and businesses which line the street. And while it has inexplicably been used in the past by Washington Market for a play area for their students as well as a meeting area with parents, truth be told it is a filthy two blocks that dog owners use as a dog run, complete with feces and urine. That, combined with the usual rats, makes this just about the worst place you could think of to have young children play.

  2. Is there a way to tell when a smoke shop is about to open and what we can do to stop it. On Church between Chambers and Reade there are FOUR smoke shops and then you turn the corner on Chambers there are two more. Now we all know at least two of them on Church sell weed illegally and lately has become the “bodega” hang out. Can you always include in these post or on your weekly newsletters the link to report the sell of illegal weed smoke shops. As well when we should stop by the community boards to voice our concerns.
