Andrew Cuomo timed the announcement of Patrick Foye as head of the Port Authority with an announcement that he plans to revive the moribund Moynihan Station project.
With the hiring of Foye, the future of Ground Zero redevelopment now rests squarely on Gov. Cuomo, the DN says.
Foye has deep experience in municipal finance and the granular details of government, and has one more advantage, Dana Rubenstein writes: The backing of Gov. Cuomo.
Cuomo also announced the appointment of James Rubin to the Port Authority board. He was recently forced out as an editor of Bloomberg Views.
Joe Lhota is expected to be named as head of the M.T.A. as early as today.
