A “greener, greater New York”


mayor_graphicfull.jpg Check out this handy graphic from today’s NYT coverage of Bloomberg’s long-term plan for a greener city. The Times points out that New Yorkers may be pissed off by plans to charge cars $8 for the privilege of entering Manhattan and loosening zoning restrictions to allow for more densely populated neighborhoods. The paper also notes that the plan is very expensive and would require huge buy-in from the State. We shall see.

The Independent Media center breaks down the congestion plan and links to criticism here.

    What strikes me about this plan is that there is no mention of trash in it.. No matter how good recycling might be in NY, there is always room for improvement, and it doesn’t look like thats in the plan. The second thing is, there is also no mention of promoting cycling and improving conditions for cycling, which IMO kinda sucks.

    Anyway, I just found your blog today. I love trash too 😀 I didn’t know there was a blog about it… I’ll be sure to come back for more!

    Thanks, Alina. Please do stop back again!

    IndyMedia mentioned that bikes are covered in a glossy brochure: http://www.nyc.gov/html/planyc2030/html/plan/download.shtml
