Congestion pricing in Manhattan below 60th Street is “being whispered in the ears of City Hall officials” according to the Times (in an article written by Sewell Chan!) It’s an idea that keeps popping up, for the simple reason that it’s an obvious, huge win. The only obstacles are inertia, and Queens councilmembers representing a small minority of New York City residents who drive to work regularly. Even those residents are probably a minority of constituents for the relevant Councilmembers. Are they organized enough to thwart what’s best for the vast majority in the city?
