More headlines about the terrible House transpo bill at Streetsblog Capitol Hill

  • Larry Littlefield

    Two convention centers and another arena.  Someone needs to tell these people that older generations have bankrupted the government, and he question is how much can we allow our existing built environment to deteriorate without making it unusable.

  • Glenn

    The support for Alt-side stickers goes across all boroughs, all political parties and has a similar support among car owners who park on the street as those who do not.

  • vnm

    I home this poll emboldens the mayor to veto this stupid alt-side sticker legislation.  

  • kevd

    What is this absurd fetishisation of convention centers and arenas?  Willets point / Jamaica / Downtown Brooklyn / MSG / Javits…..  

    Is that the only thing these people can think up?  Convention centers and arenas?
