PBS on New York Transportation
May 21st, 2009

As part of its series on infrastructure problems nationwide, PBS yesterday aired a documentary called “Road to the Future.” This program covers urban transportation, and its fourth part focused on New York City. The segment discusses Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan’s efforts at opening up the streets to more than cars, Bloomberg’s congestion pricing plan, and the effects of Robert Moses on neighborhoods of color, particularly the South Bronx. As part of the Web feature, you can also read an analysis of the congestion pricing plan, view an extended interview with Sadik-Khan and read a post about federal stimulus funds and transportation projects in New York.

    Congestion at any rate: Is Underdevelopment!

    Maybe is the best predictor of the front of this stupid and inservible army we call capytalism.

    Any child seen any level of congestion at any place, please, dennounce it to the closest public service, because any congestion is also the “HERIDA” on our own organism, suffering every day many other injustices, of course, but the mere ignorance of everyday dominant individualistic transport system very visible in its “best” symptome: THE CONGESTION, when in children mouths and feelings, society will respond, because children in revolution are impossible to stop. THEIR CONSENSUS is, NOT ONLY NECESSARY but very easy to reach, throught their mothers and fadthers, brothers, etc…

    children can not be lyed

    We need to replenish all the media with more and more “congestion landscapes”. bECAUSE they try to construct in our minds a paradise of the only car in promenade by a romanthic road and landscape.
