The Apotheosis of the Absurd: Port Authority of NY and NJ to spend $940 million to attract businesses to lower Manhattan

Commissioner from Bergen County on Port Authority review committee –

Considering this is the most desirable real estate in the world, where there is the highest demand for retail space, it is 100% absurd in my view to spend almost one billion dollars in attracting businesses. This is an example of what is wrong with the hundreds of independent subdivisions of the state government: They fleece the public with impunity.
