  •  Can’t wait for Dov Hikind to find a reason to sue DOT over the benches too. 

  • Westchesterite

     That WPIX story about Central Park is incredibly misleading.  It makes you think that the Central Park Transverses will be closed, when I believe this is not the case.  It is only the loop drive.  Also, the photo accompanying the story has a picture of one of the transverses next to the headline.

    Can Streetsblog demand a correction from WPIX?  

  • Albert

    Westchesterite is right.  I thought the same thing.  If WPIX had done any journalistic research, they’d have known to reassure those of their listeners that drive cars in NYC that the transverses will always remain open to cross-town traffic, as that’s what the original architects of Central Park designed them for and why they put them *below ground level* so they wouldn’t affect the bucolic atmosphere of the park — unlike the *ground-level* Loop, which was specifically designed for recreation.

    Restoring the Loop to its original car-free condition would never affect the transverses (nor should it), as the transverses are a *completely separate system* from the Loop and are arguably part of the Manhattan street grid.

  •  The gas station on Houston died for me when it changed from Gasateria and the wonderfully odd perspective panting came down.
