Nothing is more important to Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney than the quality of life in her district. She is proud of the work she has done to improve infrastructure, preserve historic neighborhoods, fight for better zoning and create schools in her district. Whether working to create an academically rigorous public high school on the Upper East Side, seeking to restore the crumbling Queens seawall or fighting for a full build Second Avenue Subway, her first priority has always been to make her district a better place to live.

NEW YORK, NY – Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (NY-12), Council Member Ben Kallos (District Five) and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer today praised Mayor Bill de Blasio’s proposal to invest $35 million in the East River Esplanade, a stretch of public, open space along the East River from 60th to 125th St. in dire need of restoration. The funding in the Mayor's Executive Budget Proposal represents a crucial start to the total of $115 million over ten years as reported in the Daily News needed to repair the seawall to prevent needing to spend $430 million on the repair later, according to the Parks Department. Maloney and Kallos co-chair the East River Esplanade Task Force, a group of community members and elected officials advocating for improvements to the park.
“The Mayor laid out an aggressive first term agenda that will help ensure our city offers hope and opportunity to all of its residents. From paid sick leave and raising the minimum wage to affordable housing and universal pre-k, Mayor de Blasio set forth a plan that will make New York an even better place to live and raise a family. He’s focused on the needs of everyday New Yorkers, and with the cost of living continuing to grow, that’s something that is sorely needed. He is off to a great start."
