Twenty years ago today, Louis Sahuc took this iconic photograph of Quarterite Lucy Burnett protesting oversized buses in our neighborhood. Somehow, in the days before Facebook and Twitter, the photo went viral, even making the New York Times. As a result, the city began to address the problem, and year later, enacted legislation banning most such vehicles from the Quarter.

This is what happens when dedicated, involved, engaged citizens take a stand. Thank you to everyone involved in this effort, and we hope that the effort shown by principled citizens at City Hall today regarding short-term rentals will have the same effect!

T O D A Y is the big meeting! The City Council will take up short-term rentals at 2 pm. We are encouraging everyone to arrive earlier, though, as we expect the pro-STR side to pack the chambers. The rules, as we understand them, are that everyone who signs up to speak gets 1 minute. You can cede your minute to someone else, but no one speaker will get more than 6 minutes. Even if you don't plan to speak, please sign in anyway - we can figure out who might need that extra minute for a more in-depth public comment! ... See MoreSee Less
