It’s not dead yet

by Benjamin Kabak

Despite reports last week that the Tishman Speyer deal for the Hudson Yards rights was dying a painful death, Mayor Bloomberg, working to secure his legacy, thinks otherwise. As The Times reported on Saturday, Bloomberg is working hard to pressure Tishman Speyer and the MTA to pave over their problems. While Bloomberg claims some sort of altruistic desire to see the potential of the empty area realized, one of his quotes is very telling: “It’s going to get done. And the No. 7 line is going to get done. And it will be so far along before I leave office that nobody is going to be able to stop it.”

I don’t get it. Why don’ they work on a service that gets people from Metro North in Beacon to Stewart? The Beacon station is about 15 minutes away.
