Wednesday’s Headlines: Day of Atonement Edition
Sins? Sure, I have plenty, but there’s too much going on today to sit around atoning for them. So grab your coffee (or a Yom Kippur-approved substitute) and enjoy today’s news:
- The Daily News editorial board demands that Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza get to the bottom of the school bus mess.
- After yesterday’s paean to Andrew #StatusCuomo, the Daily News publishes an op-ed by John Raskin and Maritza Silva-Farrell that offers another view of Cuomo’s stewardship of the subway.
- If you care about all those burned up cars at Kings Plaza, here’s the update. (NY Post, WSJ)
- The Brooklyn Paper goes where no one else seems to be going: Why so many polling sites in the 46th District in Brooklyn haven’t even reported their results yet — one week after the election!
- The New York Times still hasn’t removed the question mark from its offensive headline about the trial of a bus driver accused of killing a Citi Bike rider.
- Who even knew anyone still cared about the Miss Subways contest? Vin Barone has the story for amNY.
- ICYMI: Politico’s Dana Rubinstein reports that Mayor de Blasio’s BQX “czar” has quit, which makes sense. Rubinstein also has a deep dive on de Blasio’s failed effort to tackle congestion, but it’s only for Politico Pro subscribers.
- Architecture students offer a new vision for the Sunnyside Yards (hint: it will never get built). (QNS)
- Friend of Streetsblog Chesney Parks has posted another “cops getting food in bike lanes” video.
- And, finally, here’s a great video of #CuomosMTA during yesterday’s rain storm. (H/T
