Wonderful article on Clayton Patterson (“Lower Insider,” Feb. 6)! He continues to try to keep the old Lower East Side alive; he’s like a person piling sandbags along the Mississippi to keep the river from inundating the surrounding countryside.
The river, in this case, is the flood of money pouring into the city, and the task Clayton is doing is thankless, and perhaps doomed to failure. He’s a wonderful person, and I thank him from the heart.
