Comment Of The Day

A temporary levy on all properties between Lexington east to the FDR north of 96th for the duration of the project would definitely help pay for it. The problem is that this was not used for phase one, and of course there would be cries of favorable treatment, especially as the section south of 96th is much wealthier than the area north of 96th. I suppose the levy could apply all the way down to 72nd or 63rd instead to be more equitable.—The Commentariat [MTA Wants Developers To Help Fund Second Ave. Subway]
