The Battle over Moynihan

The Sun’s David Lombino gives further evidence that the one development project that once had all friends and no enemies is forcing people to choose sides, this time with business groups pushing for a delay and Gov. Pataki pushing forward:

The president of the Partnership for New York City, Kathryn Wylde, said the state’s push for Moynihan is “premature.”
“I think we should make sure that when the PACB votes, it is on the entire project,” Ms. Wylde said. “The MSG piece is critical to making this project really work and maximize the benefits.”
“Why approve a partial project as opposed to the whole thing?” Ms. Wylde said.

We told you so.
