Bloomberg on Spitzer: Day One, big development projects on track

Yesterday, during his weekly appearance on John Gambling's ABC radio show, Mayor Mike Bloomberg was asked how he'd get along with governor-elect Eliot Spitzer. After mentioning various compatibilities, Bloomberg added, "He understands our need for the big development projects."

Which projects? The Post, reporting on an earlier statement, cited Moynihan Station, Ground Zero, and the Second Avenue subway.

On the Empire Page, consultant Joseph Mercurio opined:
What major projects will begin? Look for quick starts on projects like the Second Avenue Subway, Ground Zero, Governors Island, Moynihan Station, and the new Tapanzee Bridge, not to mention Congressman Jerry Nadler’s rail freight tunnel getting started in earnest.

Was Atlantic Yards contemplated? It wasn't clear, but Spitzer and Bloomberg could both do a little more research.
