The more time cars
have to traverse Prospect Park, the less it resembles an urban sanctuary, advocates of fewer
cars in the park said this week.
In a series of letters to this newspaper, local residents; many of whom
are members of Transportation Alternatives, a pedestrian and cyclist advocacy
group, railed against the Department of Transportation's (DOT) decision to
extend holiday hours, allowing automobiles access 24 hours a day to motorists,
Monday through Friday and excluding holidays, through December.
