  • Giving up the JFK Rail Link is an acceptable sacrifice. The Skytrain and A train already provide a transit link, and to many more destinations than one in lower Manhattan. The A train should be upgraded with plush seats, its cars and stations retrofitted for baggage, some stops skipped, and voila. There’s our Link.

    The petty, nasty bitterness over parking privilege abuse is the last straw in making me PRO-congestion pricing. It seems (SEEMS, folks) that NYPD is retaliating against the all the recent attention to parking abuse by enforcing even less. I always feared that, and it’s why I was not enthusiastic about Perhaps congestion pricing is a better way to make the public costs of driving truly equitably shared, rather than subject to b.s. such as corrupt enforcement.
