Episode 4 of ‘The Next Stop Is…’ tackles the mayoral primaries

By

Allow me to present the fourth episode of “The Next Stop Is…”, the Second Ave. Sagas podcast. It’s mayoral primary time again in New York City, and as the Big Apple looks beyond the 12-year reign of Michael Bloomberg, host Eric Brasure and I delve into what the Democratic and Republican candidates are proposing in regards to the major transit issues facing the city in 2013. We discuss the lack of Big Ideas and the recent love affair with ferries.

I opted against endorsing a candidate in this week’s podcast, but I will provide some thoughts on the best candidates for mayor, from transit and livable streets perspectives, later this week. For now, give the podcast a listen. You can also find the podcast in iTunes, but the new episode isn’t available there yet. This week’s recording runs a shade over 30 minutes, the perfect amount of time for your subway commute.

We’ll be back with a new episode in two weeks, and we’d love to take more reader questions. So if you have a topic you’d like me to cover, leave a comment or drop me a note.

    Vanshnookenraggen’s map for the future of the subway system have been making its rounds. Maybe you could go through what you liked and disliked and what long term expansions and improvements you could see occurring maybe 20-30 years down the line. The MTA’s next five year plan seems just around the corner.
