Eric Goldwyn Tours Second Avenue Subway

96th Street Station with NPR’s The Indicator from Planet Money


Director of Transportation and Land Use, Eric Goldwyn, was a guest on The Indicator from Planet Money to discuss transit costs and Second Avenue subway-station design. Host Darian Woods mentioned that at the 96th Street station the MTA had to pay the New York City Parks Department $11 million for a playground area to store construction equipment; Goldwyn responded:

[People we spoke to] were like, what do you mean that the MTA has to pay the city of New York? Like, why would they do that? It’s all the same. And I would say, no, it’s not all the same in the eyes of these different sorts of jurisdictions and these different municipal agencies. They all have their own budgets and sets of issues that they’re trying to satisfy.
