U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, who represents Manhattan's East Side in Congress has released a report showing that two mega-billion dollar rail construction projects in her district have produced billions of dollars in economic benefits, including 38,000 new jobs. The projects are the Second Avenue Subway line and the Long Island Rail Road East Side Access project, which will run commuter trains to a new station beneath Grand Central Terminal.
That's good news, but it would be a true delight if some of the laid-off investment bankers who live in her district now work as sand hogs.
From Vicksburg to Natchez.
