Letter: Related Should Pay Attention

    Re: Mary Kekatos' article ["The Noise That Never Sleeps"] (week of July 3). I have walked the area near East 93 street written in the article and I can certainly understand Mr. O'Connor's complaint. I could not live the way he is being forced to live. What I cannot understand is why Steven Ross, chairman and CEO of Related Companies, has done nothing to ameliorate the situation. Surely, a man with a net worth of 15 billion dollars and a history of many awards and achievements would not want to damage his image and at least make an attempt to understand how his development impacts so many lives, many of whom are seniors who are confined to their apartments. I hope when I read about this development again I will find that Mr. Ross will have done the right thing, or something! James Derren East 52nd Street
