Some say Golden’s image is tarnished

A mother whose son was killed by a reckless driver recently spent 24 hours protesting outside a Bay Ridge state senator’s local office because she claimed the pol backtracked on a personal promise to her that he’d push the passage of a bill to double the number of speed cameras citywide, which his Republican party blocked in the state Senate.. Amy Cohen, who stood vigil with other safe-street activists, claimed Sen. Marty Golden has the power to get the legislation passed before the city’s speed-camera program expires on July 25 — but is choosing not to. Our readers’ opinions varied widely on this hot-button issue: Comments (1)

Cleaning Our Waterways

There’s a catch: Signs can’t ban angling in Gowanus without data on how putrid canal affects fish, state says

State officials cannot sign off on placards that ban all fishing in the fetid Gowanus Canal, which past federal studies found filled with life-threatening chemicals, because they lack any actual data on how those toxic substances taint species that swim inside the channel itself, according to a bigwig from New York State’s Department of Health.
