Assemblymen Brodsky and Gottfried Conduct Hearing on West Side Projects

google earth west side manhattan aerialYesterday, Assemblyman Richard Brodsky conducted a hearing on West Side development with civic groups, including the MAS, community boards, and business organizations.  A major point of discussion was the possibility of building a new convention center over the railyards in Sunnyside, Queens now that the Javits Convention Center expansion plans have been substantially curtailed. Other topics included financing the No. 7 line extension and state ownership of the Hudson Yards site. We strongly believe that Moynihan Station will catalyze West Side development – if the State plans for the long-term, invests in infrastructure, and maintains land ownership.
