A Round and a Roundy: Cuomo’s Mystery Train
This week, national treasure editorial cartoonist Bill Roundy takes the classic villain/lady on the train tracks bit and subtracts the mustache but adds in a victim or two.
Yes, there’s Gov. Cuomo still bull-headedly pursuing a “wrong way” AirTrain between LaGuardia Airport and an already overcrowded subway train and an unconnected LIRR spur line at Citi Field. As we’ve also reported, the entire project is basically a people mover to a parking lot.
Meanwhile, about to be crushed are the many reasons why Cuomo shouldn’t do it (our favorite? “Looking at a map even once”).
The FAA just finished a round of public hearings, so stay tuned for the next steps for Cuomo’s AirTrain boondoggle.
In the meantime, all of Bill Roundy’s cartoons are archived here.
