Christine Quinn’s press office just announced the Council will vote at 3:30 p.m. on congestion pricing. Which is interesting because the first pitch of the Yankee’s opening game at home – where Quinn, the mayor and a few elected officials are expected to attend – is at 1:05 p.m.
Beat the traffic!
Here is the announcement from Quinn’s office.
