To the Editors:

Save the Sunlight of New York is a group of citizens who are concerned about the threat to the natural light available to New York City residents and visitors due to “supertower” overdevelopment, particularly this year’s spate of thousand-foot towers that overshadow Central Park and proposed massive development projects in midtown Manhattan and residential parts of Greenwich Village and the Upper East Side.

We are petitioning New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to reappraise zoning laws to limit the height of buildings around New York City’s parks and residential neighborhoods. Please sign our petition, which is online at
