I know I'm a broken record on this, but for good reason. The City needs to focus on the infrastructure that makes a growing city thrive. Choked subways, streets, schools and sewers do not a sustainable growth model make.
I'm not at all surprised to see a growing population and welcome the news. It is far better to grow our urban population than to see our farms and forests paved over for sprawl. We need to do a better job planning and provisioning for population growth.
