This from our friends over at "The Word On Columbia Street", who refer to the recent Brooklyn Eagle article about the trolley plan, (here). The story states, referring to Congresswoman Velazquez,
"In her request for funding for the Fiscal Year 2010 surface transportation bill, she has included $10 million for “design and construction of a light rail system along the Brooklyn waterfront from Red Hook to Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn, N.Y.”
So not only a feasibility study for the trolley plan, but also the funds to see it through .... or at least to get it started. Not bad.
