    “Under the agreement, which was hashed out during a two-hour meeting on Tuesday with Gov. Cuomo, Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-Queens) and influential labor unions…”

    What does that mean?

    What’s wrong with Golden supporting a local independent publication? I smell anti-Semite radical, environmentalist psycho

  • com63

    Really good reporting in that Politico article on the bridge lights. I love how they tracked down tons of info from the contractor and consultants even though the State won’t comment.

  • yeah we’re raving anti-Semites here at Streetsblog

  • reasonableexplanation

    Dude, what’s wrong with you?

    You’re right about the great reporting. Wow! And really gets to the heart of what’s wrong with Cuomo’s Albany. It is bad when private companies are more transparent than government agencies.

    The good news: Golden faces a credible primary contest.

    the guy must be related to Seinfeld’s crazy Uncle

    I feel for that Sunnyside Dad. I’m a Greenwood Heights Dad. So I’m smack between Sunset Park and Park Slope. Everything is such a short bike ride away (including preschool) and the alternative is taking a car (or buying one) for these relatively short distances. It’s just nuts that we don’t have effective leadership in this city that can effectively communicate how much more convenient this city can become if we modified our streetscape to enhance bike and ebike mobility. People are scared to death of losing mobility. So they cling to their cars even with onerous ASP rules and the congestion it causes (and to be fair, for many hours of the day, there’s little congestion, on, like 5th ave in Brooklyn for example or 9th street, which has very low traffic volumes — indicating, excess street capacity for cars and the exclusion of modes that can efficiently carry more peope). They’re afraid of losing their kids to traffic violence so it becomes an arms race to ensconce our children in 3,000lb of steel for really short errands. Even my Dutch born and raised wife would like a car for us. I hate de Blasio.
