    The Daily News bit seems to have been written by a 12 year old intern with a 10 minute deadline. Every sentence is generic, every fact can be disproven if they go back in the record and look at NYC DOT data reported. It’s quite incredible even in this day and age of horrible reporting that Daily News would let the Daily News get away with such an opinion of nothing.

  • Actual NYer

    The Daily News opinion editors have, essentially, become livable streets truthers. No amount of evidence will convince them that Obama is a US citizen, evolution is real, Planet Earth is round, and bike lanes and public plazas are beneficial to New York City. They will always need to see more evidence. They simply can’t be satisfied.

    I just wonder how a seemingly intelligent person like Josh Greenman shows up to work every morning at that place. Perhaps he is not intelligent at all. I’d be deeply embarrassed if I were him.

  • Searcher

    Is the Daily News aware that this thing called Google exists? Data on Times Square traffic flow is available to anyone with an Internet connection.

  • Kevin Love

    The Daily News is so profoundly unprofessional. To state that under JSK:

    “…the facts were cherrypicked to retroactively justify all decisions.”

    This is a gross falsehood, and a blatant forked-tongue lie. These lying liars should be profoundly ashamed of themselves for their lying lies.

    Notice that these lying liars are totally unable to provide any facts or examples or evidence of any kind whatsoever to support their drive-by smearing of JSK’s integrity.

    Aggregate U.S. newspaper circulation peaked 30 years ago, and the Daily News is still doing its best not to let go of 1984.
