How to Fund a Waterfront Project

East River Esplanade

Read this article; it’s about the $148 million that New York City and the state will spend to renovate two piers along the East River.  It creates 400 new jobs in Gotham.

That’s about $370 thousand per job created.  All it takes is David Paterson, Sheldon Silver and the mayor of a great city to pull it off.

Well, we have all three, right?  This means that Buffalo will be next, right?  We need some state-funded jobs like that.
