Extra! Extra! Help Make Unsightly Newsracks a Thing of the Past

newsracks clutter

For more than a decade, the Municipal Art Society and our Streetscapes Committee have advocated for the regulation of newsracks which often clutter the sidewalks of New York. Now we have good news to report: On April 25, the city’s Department of Transportation will start to enforce new regulations that Mayor Bloomberg signed into law. Civic-minded residents can play an important role by reporting newsrack violations in their neighborhoods — in fact, without you the program won’t work. Download our brochure about the Newsrack brochure to help make newsrack chaos old news in your neighborhood. Please note that the new 311 information hotline should be used instead of the number listed in the newsrack brochure.
