    Please do not change the Zoning in Ch, it will end up looking like the Williamsburg zoo, meaning: ugly 5 story houses in middle of the block, or uneven houses… Etc.

    As long as everybody gets affordable housing, it should be fine.

    CH back yards are ugly because of many styles and some out of proportion structures , but if you keep the front building the same who knows what’s going on in the backyard …. Do what ever you want to do , but keep all historical fronts the same style ….

    You are dead wrong my friend, if this new zoning gets approved, people will be allowed to build a building in middle of any block thus killing the decent look this neighborhood maintained for years.

    Alternate side parking should be changed to once a week just like borough park did.

    And how about painting the pumps!!!

    Or allow citizens to do it privately! It will save people money and “create” more parking spots!

    Man, I hate new york!
