So what the hell happened yesterday with Moynihan Station, the new, presumed-to-be-gorgeous Penn Station that seemingly everyone wants but never actually happens? Well, as we know, Shelly Silver killed it. But why? Excellent question. And one that turns one's attention to New York's politics savant, Chris Smith, for answer. Seems there are many agendas at play, from all the stated ones to an unstated wish to hold things off till Spitzer's term to win some favors from the new governor. Oh, and there's more. Smith explains it all over at Early and Often.
