A long time in the making, the controversial Penn Station redevelopment picked up some steam this week after getting approval from a key state board. While there are still many questions to be answered — including the final cost — NY1’s Zack Fink, Courtney Gross and Juan Manuel Benítez took a detailed look at where the project currently stands and the pros and cons of such an enormous undertaking.
Also, as early voting quickly approaches, they discussed the race for the 12th Congressional District, which is one of the more competitive contests on the ballot this August. Which of the two democratic heavyweights, Rep. Jerrold Nadler or Rep. Carolyn Maloney, will win the battle? And exactly where does Suraj Patel fit into all of this?
The conversation also includes a brief detour into the recent attack on gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin and bail reform.
We want to hear from you, especially what you think about the Penn Station renovation.
