0 Greater Midtown East Rezoning: Moves in the Right Direction for Transit

On August 9, New York City’s City Council approved the Greater Midtown East Rezoning. In a reassuring collaboration between the City’s Department of City Planning (DCP), Department of Transportation (DOT), and the state-run MTA, the rezoning shows a rare coming together in politics and policy between City and State. While the rezoning will help provide infrastructure improvement, there is still the question of ongoing maintenance funding that the impacted stations will require with additional use.
