"York Penn Station. Amtrak and L I double our riders will start using the new Hall, which is housed in the old Farley Post office building starting tomorrow. Eric Gertler is the acting commissioner of Empire State Development. He described some of the news stations most distinctive features. An Art Deco inspired clock that evokes the Farley building itself with its distinctive corners. Great train home needs a great centerpiece and the 92 ft High Scar light with over an acre of glass. The new train hall connects to Penn Station under Eighth Avenue. It's named after the late U. S. Senator Daniel Patrick Morning Han, who represented New York in the Senate for a quarter century and pushed for the project in the 19 nineties. Some Buffalo bills, fans will be able to attend the team's first home playoff game in 25 years in person. That's after Governor Cuomo announced more than 6700 fans will be allowed entry to build stadium. As long as they test negative for the coronavirus. Cuomo says the event could serve as a model for reopening other types of businesses by utilizing rapid testing. Can you wrap it test? Everyone 7000 people going into a venue And then can you do the contact tracing afterwards and find out what happened. If this works well, then you would look to expand it. Cuomo's urging fans who attend the game not to tailgate. They'll also be required to wear masks and it here to social distancing guidelines. The state will also contact trace all 6700 fans after the game. It's been a rough year, but some people found reasons to be optimistic. In 2020 Manhattan Borough president, Gale Brewer says she's been uplifted by the number of New Yorkers she saw stepping up in volunteering. People really went out of their way to be supportive of neighbors in New York City. Food, PPE, etcetera and and I think and hope is just a small silver lining because there isn't much that this could be a future where people really looking out for each other. This year saw huge growth in neighborhood based mutual aid networks and projects such.

It's the you know Manhattan Plan we've done as much as we can I. Hope.

"Mean there's so for example, there's a there's a plan at perhaps you're familiar with this This this pro housing group opened New York and they wanNA see the Soho. No rezoning for over three thousand I think new homes and as you said about about twenty five percent would be affordable show is that the type of plan that you can get behind where there's a lot more new housing built at with the program. I think it would be nice. We'll have to see if there's more federal dollars available in the near future because then we could do some section eight and do something that has more affordability in the building. That's what I'm looking for button. Supportive of affordable housing in neighborhoods of been doing that my entire life, somewhat more of it, and how do we do that? In the neighborhood and we do need there's no question we need some. Federal. Subsidy. and also could you know HPD's not willing to help us in Manhattan alone those lines with a little bit that they have. They want to go to the borough and that's also right. HDD wants to basically just maximize what the market will will help provide by you know by insisting on the. M. A. M. I H is now baked in as part of it in and they don't WanNA use their subsidy dollars to add to that right. Right correct and that is frustrating those of us in Manhattan. It would like to have people affordability t more affordability, and we end up with whatever the market will allow posted more. That's frustrating for me. Okay. Unfortunately, just have a few more minutes, but I just want to touch on a couple more things with you. The this court ruling about the downtown jail plan that could throw the whole jail plan in the four zero in the closing breakers into question. What do you think should happen next there I. Mean. What's what's do you want to You know it seems like the city will appeal but what's your vision for how that moves forward? Well that was I was not I was surprised about the ruling though we have been you know we had a hearing through the. and just to be honest, we are continuing to have discussions with the city and the stakeholders we obviously cannot under the court ruling, put a shovel in the ground so we can have ongoing discussions..

"So you think more sort of combination SRO's supportive housing needs to come online as quickly as possible and and all over the all over the borough in the city you know I mean at one of the one of the questions here is obviously you know Sorta Hood equity are there are there lessons around that that we need to take away from this most recent? issue. I think the way you do it is the way I've done it for years because I've always been supportive and been successful as how's the east side if you do it with community planning and you do it with a really well known well respected nonprofit and you don't put in too many people and if I if I may suggest, you know many other people besides homeless who are low income need housing. That's what the old single room occupancies were and they never had a problem. So that's what you need to do. But it it never seems to work with you know any discussion it. I think part of it is is how the transitional is funding funded and how much more complicated and more expensive to fund. Permanent Supportive Housing, but that's what we need. And what about beyond that? What about affordable housing and more housing in the borough You know very interesting discussion happening where controller stringer who's running for mayor recently came out in support of up zoning. So and said, you know part of his affordable housing plan that he's pushing as a mayoral candidate will be two to zone wealthier communities. Where do you stand on Nad I don't know if you've taken a clear stance on the idea of the Soho. Of Up Zoning to to add more affordable housing and housing generally what what are your thoughts on that Well I know they have been I initiated and Co chaired with Margaret. Chin a whole discussion on this for about a year and a half. So we actually have import we have We had a facilitator that the city paid for it. We had stakeholders I mean we we had huge hearings and meetings. Many many discussions about this topic. I think generally the problem is that nobody would be opposed to Especially, me affordable housing in Soho upper west side east side any one of these neighborhoods what happens is you end up just because of how the city looks at Manhattan you end up with a very tall building that only has twenty five percents it's called the am I h you know inclusionary housing, mandatory inclusionary housing. It would be preferable if we could have more affordable in that building, then you would and then and so no I would like to see artists. That is weird. The artist should be and there should be available housing for them. So we're talking about it but what I'm trying to say is the process that exists now is very limited doesn't include artist housing and that's frustrating to me because I'd like even more if you're going to build the building and you only have twenty five percent and the not artists, it's frustrating but I am certainly very supportive of affordable housing and every neighborhood it's just the more the better and the way that the city says is go to the Bronx scale GonNa get more for your dollar. In Manhattan, land through expensive to let the private sector pay for in terms of affordable housing, you know how that works the private just as I can only do. So. It sounds like I mean correct me if I'm wrong but it sounds like you know you're sort of again trying to balance the idea of you want You know you don't want necessarily that much new housing with larger buildings, but to try to ensure more affordability in what's built Trying, to you know especially in neighborhoods where the you know the costs are so high for for developers. You know, Sorta, how do you do that? I?.

Through should absolutely be park staff cleanup and Sanitation Papa Mind because what happens is you get rat if you don't have this, you're GonNa get wet, and that's not good at all. So you mentioned The. Of homelessness there's been so much controversy around that with with different use of hotels whether the city was moving people in not moving people. You mentioned early on in your initial answer that that concern and then also the need for more supportive housing. Are there any you I? Don't I don't think it makes sense for us to take a lot of time right now to go into all the nitty gritty details of the of the moving from hotel to hotel or neighborhood. But what are what are the big lessons? What are the what are some of the big lessons that need to be learned here to avoid a repeatable? We've seen over the last couple of months. I mean I think that neighborhood need to be conversed with. There are places given the slowdown in the economy that are for sale, and they couldn't fact how supportive housing I mean. There are hotels that if there is an excellent nonprofit. We obviously need probably some federal money don't even need to get into all the financing now, but the old single-room-occupancy that you and I grew up with her I grew up with. they all closed when you know the hotels could find market housing as a better alternative. So, I do think that we have to be very strategic about some of this supportive housing. We gotta do it I mean people complain in the neighborhood but if I was to do it I would put a SRO laugh supportive housing depending on the building. And I would have half of it be low wage workers. You know the busboys, the dishwashers. and. Homeless. You don't have one group that is dominant. But there's no plan. There's no strategy for this. If the best of my knowledge the mayor has said he wants ninety transitional right. That's what he's been talking about ninety your prostate. But I don't hear the same discussion about ninety report of housing. Less well, there's a supportive housing plan I'd have to check on where it is in its progress, but it seems like the shelter plan as you as you said, totally sort of overshadowed that in and the the immediate needs that lead to flare-ups because it seems like there's a lack broader planning seemed to dominate.

We definitely do need them to come back and you do read in the papers. We don't have any statistics as to exactly how many left exactly how many are coming back how many vacancies I have gotten call some you know owners of property residential rental who have apartment and they're trying to rent them. So I've never gotten that call before. So there is how do we get people to come back? I think we have to work on some of these as you even though you and I know the subways are clean and safe. People are not sure that if you are living outside and you just read the newspapers, you don't feel that it saves all part of it is the subway I. Don't think that there's an increase in crime as described in the papers what people hear about that, and of course, you have this the quality of life. I will say that the outdoor restaurants have been a huge boom there. So exciting there. So we did a contest of what's the most beautiful outdoor design and we had tons and tons of entries and we pick some. So all of that is restaurants. They're hurting but they're outdoor designs are fantastic and really enhance the street life. So I think we have to keep saying it's safe to come back the subways are okay..

"Coming up momentarily, and we're going to talk with the Manhattan borough president Gail brewer because Tuesday's election day. And I have been amazed at the number of New Yorkers that have come up to me and said, hey, Frank, what are these three propositions that were voting on? What do they mean? Are they are they bad? Well. The interesting thing is last year when the constitutional convention question was on the ballot. There was a lot of misinformation. And there was a lot of people that I disagreed with on the question. But they'll knew what it was. They all knew that it was on the ballot. And knew what it was even if I in my view, there was a lot of misinformation this year people have no idea what these questions are. So we're gonna do is talk with Gail brewer in fifteen minutes and find out why she's so opposed to two of these three questions, and regardless of how you end up voting. We'll tell you about what these questions are maybe nobody cares. But whatever the case may be if you're in New York City resident I know a lot of people in this audience wanna be educated when they vote we'll tell you what these questions are. And I'd love to hear from you. Any subject is fair game.

It's a pleasure listening to your show. I wanted to thank you for the interview with Jerry fall, it has such human interest. And that's what I love about your interviews. And then another note I wanted to thank you for that a week ago. I guess it wasn't yourself for Joe that you explain this propositions on the ballot. It made things so much clearer. If my friends at myself before we vote, thanks again. Will you very kind to say, so Jon, thank you. You know, it's funny. I on this show. And especially when I fill in for Joe, there's a lot of things that I'm interested in talking about that. I don't end up talking about because I feel. Much more. So with with Joe because I Mike kind of reward for myself getting up at one thirty in the morning is I get to indulge the subjects that I'm interested in. But even on this show. I try not to make it to wonky too inside baseball too esoteric to be because ultimately if it were up to me, I might discuss fusion voting professional wrestling and season season four of the twilight zone all day long. Okay. And I know that the bulk of the audience isn't necessarily interested in those things. So I try to contour the show towards discussing subjects that I think you're going to be interested in, and I think you're going to be informative and interesting and entertaining for you. So a lot of times I would love to discuss these propositions for our. And I was reluctant to even discuss it on the Piscopo show because I know a lot of the audience is outside of New York City and outside of New York state, and even the ones in New York City, maybe not into the propositions, and I have to tell you the feedback on that discussion about the propositions was so positive that. That is precisely what led me to invite gale brewer on ten minutes from now to talk about that. And you know, it's funny. The issue of talking about things that I like versus things that I think you're gonna like is part of what has prompted me to launch this new podcast and this week. I'm going to be launching a new podcast, and you can listen to it at am970theansweRcom. It's called Moreno whenever and the first episode of this podcast. We're gonna be recording tomorrow and has to do with the Whitey Bulger case, I'm very interested in the Whitey Bulger case he was murdered this week. I have a lot of opinions about it. I have a lot of questions about it. And we're gonna get into it in a new podcast that's going to be recorded in the next day or two. So if you're interested in hearing more of me or interested in hearing about Whitey Bulger case just got 'em 970amtheansweRcom, click on podcast within the next day or two and you can hear that. All right. What further ado, we we're coming up at ten minutes. And I am told Roger stone is going to be joining me in an hour. That's what he said. I have my doubts if he was up that early if he's going to be able to stay up 'til seven oh five, but we will see all right. We are without further down. We it's time for commendations..
