MTA Ready to Leave 65 Commercial

In a letter to the Mayor’s office, the MTA has finally agreed to move the operations currently housed at 65 Commercial Street. The sticking point on the move – which the MTA agreed to almost exactly 6 years ago – was the MTA’s refusal to accept the compensatory sites offered by the City. Today, the MTA finally agreed to move part of their operations to a site on the Southside beneath the Williamsburg Bridge, and the remainder to a lot in Maspeth, Queens.

So Greenpoint is one step closer to having the new park that the City (and the MTA) promised in 2005.
