Oh well. The original West Side Highway was actually built with the help of the New York Central Railroad, a private company, and was originally known as the Miller Elevated Highway (after Manhattan Borough President Julius Miller). It took 22 years to finish: the city was never very good at maintaining it, and it was closed when a big section near 14th Street collapsed in 1973, taking a truck and car with it, torn down and never rebuilt. There was one exotic plan to replace it with a tunnel called the “Westway”, but that went nowhere fast.

What about many of the most heavily used thoroughfares in NYC getting repaved? What about the same streets and highways getting LANES painted on them? Right now, it’s anyone’s guess where lanes are, as there are no lines painted.

How convenient. Make an artificial reef out of used road material. Everything environmentalists fight against, when it’s not a democrat.

The name Tappan Zee reflects New York’s history and the name Mario Cuomo reflects New York’s disgrace.

All this infrastructure improvement for a state that’s lost almost half its House seats in the last 6 decades, and is fixing to lose one to two more...
