The Coalition is a large and growing group of people who live and work in Lower Manhattan united in opposition to the proposed West Street tunnel.
Why is the tunnel a bad idea? Click to see for yourself.
It is our belief that the tunnel would adversely affect Lower Manhattan, and everyone who lives or works here. Our objective is to make local officials aware of strong community objections to this disruptive, wasteful and unnecessary project.
