Crain’s Op-Ed to ban tourist helicopters

Helicopter in riverJuly 24, 2015- Crain’s posted a guest Op-Ed from the City Council members who introduced the bill to ban noisy tourist helicopters. Margaret Chin, Carlos Menchaca, and Helen Rosenthal wrote the piece:

“As New Yorkers, we welcome visitors to our city. But as the elected representatives of the people in our districts, we cannot stand by while our constituents suffer from unremitting tourist helicopter flights. The people have spoken, and they want fewer helicopters. With this important legislation, we are showing our constituents that we hear them loud and clear.”
