single solitary street that crosses the railroad tracks without crossing gates and lights. 15th street ends with a small gravel strip to a single residence, but the city SIGN says “dead-end street” not “private drive”.
This makes the LIE of the statement that costly improvements would have to be made to get the train engineer to lay off his horn all the way through town. There’s no cause for him to be doing it now. A single light/gate unit. Why hasn’t one ever been placed at the end of 15th? Does the city have some reason for withholding the gate from this single street? What possible function could be served by not providing those citizens living at the end of 15th street the same basic safety afforded the rest of the residents of Manhattan? How could anyone object to a cessation of these all-through-the-night miles-long horn blasts?
Will the Republican Chamber of Commerce or Wynn’s PAC create a “Save the Horns” fundraiser arm? Will Wynny Kaw pronounce that only LIBS are light sleepers? There must be SOME reason. I just can’t for the life of me figure out what it would be.
