Chairman and CEO Metropolitan Transportation Authority

347 Madison Avenue

New York, NY 10017

Dear Chairman Walder:

January 11, 2011

We write to you to request a meeting regarding the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (MTA) plans for the construction of a Second Avenue Subway entrance in the building located at

301 East 69 th Street, which is in the district we represent.

It is our understanding that the residents of 301 East 69 th Street have requested that the MTA consider locating the subway station entrance on the northeast corner of East 69 th Street and 2 nd Avenue, rather than inside the currently-commercial space housed inside the residential building located at 301 East 69 th Street. We have been told by the residents of the building that they have yet to receive a comprehensive analysis of this possibility from the MTA.

We are asking that the MTA provide a response addressing the proposal submitted by the building, which includes moving the station entrance from the commercial space in 301 East 69 th Street westward onto the sidewalk.

Additionally, we have been made aware by the building that there have been a number of discussions between the MTA and the building regarding the planned construction work for the proposed subway entrance to be located at 301 East 69 th Street. We have been informed that the parties met most recently in August 2010 and that, despite a written design agreement mandating cooperation, the MTA has not provided sufficient information sought by the building including:

(1) drawings and surveys detailing the impacts to the building’s utilities, heating plant, second floor units and structural integrity; and (2) revised entrance façade drawings. It has been presented to us that the MTA has refused to a discuss reimbursing the building for the retention of additional consultants which will assist in the proposed construction, such as acoustical and code consultants.

We look forward to meeting with the MTA and the building’s leadership to discuss these issues and concerns. Please feel free to contact Jenn Krinsky in Senator Krueger’s office who will be following up with your staff, with any questions or concerns. We look forward to working with you on these matters.

We look forward to working with you on these matters. Liz Krueger State Senator Scott M.
