Ben over at SASS does a very detailed analysis of the proposal. I highly recommend reading it.
I've also been in touch with the editor over at the Brooklyn eagle, and reps from City Council Member Bill DeBlasio and Assemblywoman Joan Millman.
The MTA needs to know there is demand for this project. Sign the petition today!
