Preparing For A Future With A Million More New Yorkers
December 27th, 2006

The New York Times, oddly late-arriving in covering Mayor Michael Bloombergs speech planning for New Yorker in the year 2030 which was commented upon amply in New Yorks other newspapers two weeks ago this week ran an editorial
praising the speech
, though wondering how he was going to pay for it all.

With a projection that New York Citys population will reach nine million in 25 years, there is no question that something must be done, the Times said. Consider how difficult it is to find affordable housing, good schools, uncrowded subway cars and reasonably passable streets. Then imagine having to compete for these same services in a city that will have added a population equivalent to the city of San Francisco… Faced with similar pressures, cities like London and Shanghai are charting paths to smart growth.
