    Every single major candidate is, at the very least, paying supportive lip service to both cycling as a legitimate mode of transportation and to SBS. I’d say there’s no going back!

    But they’re all ignoring congestion pricing, subway expansion, light rail, and land use reform. Hopefully there will be progress on other social problems Bloomberg ignored or even created, but there is no particularly useful transit vision from any candidate with a prayer of winning.

    I’m very pro-cycling, of course, but installing bike lanes is both easy and a no-brainer. It’s really appalling how hard they make it.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the parking garage bondholders approached the soccer team with the idea of having something else to sell (a stadium!) in exchange for a bailout.

    Not one dime.

    The only positive aspect of this: if the Yankees really do have a deal that required the city to provide empty parking spaces, if a team owned by the Yankees replaces the garage the deal will be defunct.

    The Yankees are (at best) a minority partner.
    The real money comes from Man City and the Emir of Abu Dhabi.
    But your point may still stand.
