It’s all systems go for Penn Access, the regional transit initiative that will link Metro-North’s New Haven line to Penn Station. When the project is completed in about five years, New Rochelle will be an especially big beneficiary, boasting the closest station to NYC with direct service to both the east and west sides of Manhattan. This week, local leaders received a briefing on the project from County Executive George Latimer and Metro-North officials. I was pleased to join colleagues at every level of government in full support. Here’s video of our press conference (my comments begin at about 17:45), and there’s more information in this release.
