In a story I first read at Second Ave Sagas, the Second Avenue Subway is getting more federal funds. The increase announced yesterday was a staggering $1.3 billion dollars. For more details, I suggest reading Benjamin’s entry here.
I will end this entry with 2 statements:
1. This is great news especially for Lexington Avenue riders
2. It is about damn time the federal government steps up for straphangers in a truly needed project!
