This thread is for off topic discussions... Do not Post development news here...
Some discussion at the bottom of the JC Infill page..I was walking past Batello on the JC waterfront a few days ago and it seemed there was site prep going on where LeFrak's Pier 6 development has been approved (it was a few years ago). It looked like the old buildings at the end of the pier have been razed and they're shoring up the seawall. Can anybody confirm if this project is underway?
The tunnel was canceled to redirect all of the funding to the Pulaski Skyway so it could be done without spending new money and keeping the budget balanced. It favors suburban voters who are Christie supporters over urban rail rider voters who tend to vote Democratic.Got into a heated discussion with some die hard republican woman on the issue of who have canceled the rail road tunnel project into NYC in 2009. I was under the impression that it was NJ Governor Chris Christie, who stopped it due to the fact that it will be way over the budget. According to her, and she claimed to work for a company that makes those tunnels it was Obama's federal government that cut the funds for it.
Without going into a political discussions - do anyone knows the truth of this story, since I am confused now about the details
