Congestion pricing may or may not make it through Albany, but Christine Quinn is already collecting benefits from steering a pro-CP bill through the City Council.

It isn’t quite the Bloomberg gift Quinn wants most — an endorsement in next year’s mayoral race — but it’s a nice little start. —Chris Smith
