    This is definitely worth a read.

    It should always be remembered that the free market built the walking and transit-oriented cities, while the federal government destroyed the cities,built the suburbs, and made the suburbs segregated. Under Omerta here, like so much else, but talked about elsewhere.

    “While efforts to replace the tunnel are still in the environmental-study phase, plans to replace the bridge are much further along; it’s fully designed, its approvals are in place.”

    Why is the replacement tunnel being delayed for years at a huge cost in consulting fees to do an environmental study? That’s pretty outrageous considering the expansion of the Staten Island expressway did not require an environmental study. Neither did the extra lane on the LIE, back in the day.

    That NYTimes article was yet another glossy puff piece for motorists and Cuomo by their sycophant, Joe Berger. Can the Times create a “Features” section, please?

    Missed this one: new app makes cheap driving a substitute for expensive parking: http://www.slate.com/blogs/moneybox/2017/06/01/what_on_demand_valets_can_teach_us_about_the_american_city.html

    That Times article about subway rules is nuts. They find a harmless turtle and a guy taking his bike on an uncrowded subway (at the end of the car, like you’re supposed to), and a guy playing a harp in a similarly uncrowded car, and these are all signs of the end of days. I guess all the stories about door-blocking, showtime, and seat-hogging have already been told to death.

    London Bridge Shut Down After Pedestrians Struck; Stabbings Reported in Nearby Market

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/03/world/europe/london-bridge-van.html

    “Holly Jones, a BBC reporter who was on the bridge at the time of the incident, said the van was driven by a man and was “probably traveling at about 50 miles an hour.” She said that at least five people were being treated for injuries after the vehicle drove on the sidewalk and hit them.

    “He swerved right round me and then hit about five or six people,” Ms. Jones said. “He hit about two people in front of me and then three behind.”
