      As president of Common Ground-NYC, a Geoist/Georgist organization interested in collecting rent from the commons for the public good, I have long advocated improvements to the common walkways, Greenways, etc. that improve our city. Our group proposal to use Land Value Taxation to fund a closure of the U.N. gap along the East River, originally proposed to a Town Hall in 2011, is here: http://www.slideshare.net/ScottOnTheSpot/land-value-tax-gap-closure-proposal-29529037

      As advocates for public access and use of public land, I support efforts like those the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance is pursuing.

      Founder & Past President, Passaic River Boat Club. People deserve to have access TO the waterways via their own personal recreational boats. Boat ramps need to be constructed. Let people enjoy the water in their own boat!
