  • From ebikes “Nora Prentice, a 50-year-old Upper West Sider, says the regulation is needed to prevent a ticking safety bomb on neighborhood streets.”

    “We’re going to start rebuilding our roads and our bridges that we should have been rebuilding for decades.”

    Sounds to me like Cuomo is going to repair roads, not build new ones.  I wonder how much state money went into the rebuilding of NYC’s roads and bridges after they fell apart.  Some perhaps.  I wonder how much local money will go into the rebuilding of roads and bridges elsewhere?
