“I applaud the announced memorandum of understanding (MOU) between Amtrak, Empire State Development and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority that will enable negotiations to get our new Metro North Stations projects back on track. After all the letters, conversations, press conferences and rallies on this matter, I want to thank all our local residents and leaders who voiced their concerns loud and clear about getting this show on the road. I mean, train on the tracks,” said Council Member Andy King (12th CD/Bronx).
It was only last week that U.S. Senator Charles Schumer held a press conference at the location of the proposed Coop-City Metro North station.
