MTA emergency ventilation shaft update
In late September, the MTA made a public presentation regarding their plans to construct an emergency ventilation shaft at one of nine possible sites in and around Mulry Square, the intersection of Greenwich and 7th Avenues (see here for more information). GVSHP continued to press the MTA on the need for the project at this time and location, and on the various impacts it could have on surrounding buildings, traffic, environmental conditions, and the character of the neighborhood (see letter to the MTA here).
There is still time to get your feedback to the MTA as they continue to analyze the various possible alternatives for the plan. For sample letters you can send to the MTA, go here.
