Staring across Manhattan’s last untamed strip, the rows of sleek silver commuter trains sliding along the island’s only active rail yard, the Related Companies’ Stephen Ross points to the future.

And over there, on the other side of 33rd Street, where massive cranes bisect the sky, will be the new subway entrance.




  2. Project Owners, Developers & Contractors have sat on projects and funding since 9-11 & are flush with cash.

    NO PLA on HUDSON YARDS, TAPPAN ZEE, or any other large Project coming down the pike.

    The rank & file gave back $10-%15 Billion Dollars already, courtesy of McCarron & Spencer....ENOUGH IS more bullshit deals. No more Most Favored Nations deals selling out the U.S.A. to third world shit-holes.

    Timne for the bullshit, side-deals, bribes, kick-backs and pay-offs to be over No? It seems the Mob stole far less than the pricks in the suits with law degrees....Think about it..who ar ethe bigger thieves in al this?


I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
