Per the experts, his letter contains some genuine, heard-it-hear-first information.
The first piece of news is Doctoroff’s acknowledgement that congestion is a “major problem” that “will only get worse unless we act.”
The second news item is Doctoroff’s announcement that he is “looking carefully” at ways “to shift travel… away from the automobile and onto transit.”
The final nugget of news here is Doctoroff’s announcement of pedestrian improvement projects already underway at specific locations throughout the city — Times Square, Herald Square, Penn Station and Astor Place.
We are delighted that these changes are underfoot and thankful that both CB4 and CB2 had joined in sending similar letters.
