Home Asides Pork for Second Ave.

Pork for Second Ave.

by Benjamin Kabak

On the same day that the Second Ave. deli reopened, the Second Ave. Subway got a little pork of its own. New York City House Representatives Carolyn Maloney and Jose Serrano announced yesterday that the federal government will be sending an additional $160 million New York’s way for the Second Ave. Subway. The money comes from an appropriations bill expected to pass the House and Senate this week. [New York 1]

Not all pork is unhealthy; I’m glad to see our people bringing home a little bacon for a worthwhile project.

Now Ted Stevens and his Bridge to Nowhere(TM) is another story altogether.

At least money is being spent on something most people in the city want and need. Not like the bridge to nowhere or a museum that celebrates the contribution of mules to society (not making that up).

Found it in this article. This was all I could dig up but I read a few more stories in the past about Congress supporting funding various absurd and obscure museums.
