Council Clears Part of West Side Rail Yards Plan
Along with the clinic access bill, protecting patients and medical personnel at abortion clinics, passage of which Christine Quinn bragged on at the VID meeting yesterday, the council yesterday also cleared the way for a $15 billion business and housing complex in the West Side Rail Yards -- at least the eastern part; as City Planning does its thing, the council is expected to get to the western part later this year. Developers have come and gone from the project, but Related Companies has hung in there since its coming aboard in May. Hopefully the weather will still be nice and warm for protests when this boondoggle really gets going.
