More and more advocacy groups are questioning an MTA deal that would construct a new LIRR rail platform near Belmont Park to serve a new arena for the New York Islanders. The latest is Reinvent Albany.
It's kind of mind-blowing to think that 89 percent of MTA customers live in the city, but only 41 percent of the MTA board does. And the average MTA board member salary is 10 times that of the average customer. Out of touch? More like out of orbit.
