Slow(ish) News Day Edition – Streetsblog New York City

Like us, it seems like every other news outlet took off for Indigenous Peoples Day, as there was very little reporting in town. Here is what we have:

  • We were delighted to see council member Selvena Brooks-Powers at Sunday’s rally in support of the QueensLink transit line, which appears to be taking precedence over the QueensWay linear park. Are the Brooks-Powers transportation committee hearings up next? We hope. After all, bully desks only work if you use them. (amNY)
  • It will come as no surprise to anyone who has ever dealt with the NYPD’s press office, but the NYPD’s crime data and crime reports are not up to federal standards. (New York Post, gothamist)
  • Our friend Larry Penner is pushing the MTA to put the Utica Avenue line extension on their wish list. (Public transportation)
  • Crain’s finally published his article on the recent MTA report from controller Tom DiNapoli.
  • Finally, New Yorkers have a new boogeyman to get excited about: pickleball. (gothamist)
  • Gorillas delivery workers sued the company for alleged wage theft. (Brooklyn Paper)
  • For all of us who were surprised when Assemblywoman Diana Richardson stepped down to become ceremonial borough vice president, here’s the other shoe to drop. (NYDN)
