Rail Link Recedes

Eliot Spitzer has treated the J.F.K. Rail Link cooly, and even the Port Authority board, half of whose members were appoitned by the project’s biggest champion, Gov. Pataki, is not expected to try to change his mind. An ally of the Governor told us, in reference to today’s article on state boards and authorities: “There are mixed feelings about doing that link anyway, so it may not be that difficult to dissuade people from following it up.”
