    Re: Hutch Metro and MetroNorth in Bronx stories. Thanks to Streetsblog for highlighting the contradictions in these huge investments of private and public monies. The real irony is that the reporter, same person for both stories, doesn’t draw this out. Can someone with expertise in TOD please give this reporter a call?

    The Hutch Metro Center is a disaster is planning. Suburban corridor in the Bronx, inaccessible to a large chunk of the pollution. Increasing traffic in the far eastern Bronx in addition to that pretty lame mall in Co-op City.

    I agree that the neighborhoods around the Metro North stations should get a more dense MX rezoning designation, but let’s include eliminating the parking minimums too.

    I live in the Bronx and I typically go clothing shopping in Manhattan. Better selection and more convenient via transit (quicker), plus lots of other things to do. The mall doesn’t attract my dollars at least.
