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!
