chekpedClinton Hell’s Kitchen Coalition for Pedestrian Safety (CHEKPEDS) was founded by residents and community leaders in September 2005, to reclaim 9th Avenue from the hellish Lincoln Tunnel traffic . The coalition is growing rapidly with Businesses, Institutions and   Property Owners joining in to correct the dangerous conditions in the neighborhood : pedestrians risk their lives crossing the  streets, children cannot safely walk to schools; residents cannot breathe or sleep; public transportation is ineffective; local stores experience slow and costly deliveries; personal safety is at risk.

NYC Smoke Free


NYC Smoke-Free, a program of Public Health Solutions, has been among the organizations leading the charge against the marketing of tobacco products to youth. While New York City policy makers and community organizations have made incredible progress in their fight to keep tobacco products out of the hands of children and to ensure that all New Yorkers have smoke-free air in their workplaces, public parks, and beaches, local businesses have also done their part. NYC Smoke-Free has worked with a number of real estate companies and landlords in the city to enact voluntary smoke-free housing rules in their complexes; to date, 2200 units in the city are smoke-free. Local businesses with courtyards, parking lots, and other large outdoor spaces are also working with NYC Smoke-Free to implement smoke-free policies to protect their workers and visitors from secondhand smoke. As more businesses join in the fight for every New Yorker’s right to breathe clean, smoke−free air where they live, work, and play, the city moves one step closer to a future free f rom the dangers of tobacco and nicotine use.
