    RELATED: Bronx President Expected to Endorse Pricing (Daily News)

    “the Teamsters union…endorsed the plan yesterday.”

  • Of all the news Streetsblog filters for us, Queens Gazette letters to the editor are the most incredible. I won’t be able to stop thinking about this one all day.

    Could these letters be used in congestion pricing advertisements, I wonder? If average New Yorkers hear how those in eastern Queens think they “behave so disgustingly, on average,” I don’t see how a pro-car/anti-pricing majority could be maintained. The car commuter viewpoint expressed so openly in letters like these is utterly un-New York, and contemptuous of everything that IS New York. They should be de-annexed out of town on a rail.
