To the Editor:
A propos your article in the current issue concerning bus shelters along the Central Park side of Fifth Avenue: both Madison and Lexington Avenues are poorly served in this respect as well. For example, 67th and Madison has no shelter, 52nd and Madison has no shelter, 86th and Lex has no shelter, 91st and Madison has no shelter, 79th and Lex has no shelter, etc. I appreciate that 5th Avenue does not even have doorways in which to hide from sun and rain, but locations where many people try to board along the avenues I mention are a misery.
I understand that property owners have a veto of the placement of a shelter. If that is, in fact, the case, then a serious PR campaign on the topic of civic generosity is in order.
