Here Come the Crazy Hudson Yards Ideas

In the most stunning mass transit idea since Santiago Calatrava's gondolas to Governors, the Post reports today that part of the Durst Organization's bid for the 26-acre Hudson Yards site on the West Side involves building a "people mover" to shuttle residents and office workers to and from Penn Station. The light rail system would be run by the MTA, meaning the alleged one-minute ride would actually take a half-hour. Pictured at right is the city of Detroit's people mover. You hear that, everyone, we can be just like Detroit!
