Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Sen. Charles Schumer traded barbs yesterday over plans to develop Manhattan’s far West Side. Schumer said that building Moynihan Station and developing the area around Penn Station should be a higher priority than turning the Hudson Yards area into a business district. “I appreciate all the senator’s views on Moynihan Station. His part of the job is to bring us the money,” Bloomberg said. The mayor rejected Schumer’s suggestion that the Port Authority should build Moynihan Station, saying that the authority has struggled to rebuild the World Trade Center. [Post] and [Crain’s]
