Suburban office park discovered in Manhattan

A recent study done for Transportation Alternatives found a single census tract in Manhattan where nearly half of employees drive to work. (The average for all office jobs in Manhattan is around 12%.) Executives on Park Avenue? Financiers on Wall Street? Nope: try bureaucrats at City Hall. As always, “build parking and they will drive”; the city gives away $33 million a year in free parking to thousands of workers at NYPD, NYCDOT, and other agencies.
