Word from the Times that Lincoln Center is rethinking 65th Street comes as a relief. I'm always walking on West 65th to get to the Walter Reade Theater, and it's just this barren, boring, scary-at-night type of street. A void. While there are businesses in the area, there's a lot of opportunity to spruce up the street. I wonder if earlier hesitation has been because of Martin Luther King Jr. High School at the corner of Amsterdam and West 65th. One of the more notorious high schools in the city, it has many problems, and there was a shooting last year. Hopefully reinvigorating West 65th will have a halo effect - the school has a 42% graduation rate.
