Businesses Fighting Against Bus Shelters On Madison Avenue


LASER INTO MULTIPLE AIRPORT PILOTS RECENTLY, COMING FROM THE AREA OF ROSLYN LONG ISLAND. PLANS TO MAKE COMMUTERS’ LIVES EASIER ARE IN THE WORKS BUT ON MADISON AVENUE, THAT IS MET WITH OPPOSITION. Reporter: MADISON AVENUE HAS LONG BEEN SYNONYMOUS WITH FASHION AND ADVERTISING, PLENTY OF HIGH-END SHOPS SCENED TO ENTICE YOU BUT IT MAY CHANGE. THE TRANSPORT OF TRANSPORTATION WANT TO INSTALL BUS SHELTERS WITH ADS OF THEIR OWN FROM 57th TO 58th STREET. SOMETIMES, WHEN IT’S SNOWING OR RAINING. Reporter: MANY SAID THEY WOULD APPRECIATE A COVERED PLACE TO WAIT BUT SOME COMMUNITY GROUPS ARE NOT ON BOARD. IT WOULD REALLY HARM THE BUSINESSES HERE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD WITH ILLUMINATED SIGNS AND SIDEWALKS THAT ARE VERY NARROW. Reporter: THE IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT PRESIDENT BROUGHT THE TAPE MEASURE ALONG TO SHOW HOW MUCH SPACE THE PROPOSED SHELTERS TAKE UP. IT BLOCKS THE STOREFRONT, TWO WINDOWS BLOCKED. Reporter: THIS IS WHAT THEY COULD LOOK LIKE. THE D.O.T. COMMISSIONER ARGUE THEY ARE A NARROWER VERSION AND THEY WOULD BE CLEAR. WE HAVE COME UP WITH A SPECIAL, A VERY SKINNY DESIGN WITH A GLASS PANEL TO SEE THROUGH THE BUS SHELTER TO THE STOREFRONT. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PUTTING A SIGNAL NUMBER, ABOUT 12 OF THEM. Reporter: BUT THEY WOULD INCLUDE ILLUMINATED ADVERTISEMENT ON THE SIDE, TAKING AWAY FROM THE APPEAL AND LOOK OF MADISON AVENUE, ACCORDING TO BAUER? WE ARE — BAUER. WE ARE WORKING WITH THE CITY
