Get the Scoop on Congestion Pricing, Brooklyn Development on BCAT's Reporter Roundtable

We're expecting a certain amount of fireworks on tonight's (that's Friday night's) Reporter Roundtable on Brooklyn Independent Television. The show will feature moderator Gersh Kuntzman (editor of the Brooklyn Papers), Sarah Ryley of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Tom Tracy of Courier Life Publications and Rich Calder of the NY Post -- a lively mix.

The panel will tear into hot button issues including Mayor Bloomberg’s plan for congestion pricing on traffic in parts of Manhattan (an issue that will affect thousands of Brooklyn commuters); as well as the growing tension between developers and local residents and businesses in neighborhoods such as Coney Island, Downtown Brooklyn, and Red Hook.

The show will premier Friday, June 29 at 9 p.m., with encore presentations all next week. (See web site for schedule.) Catch it on Time Warner channel 56 and Cablevision channel 69, or streamed live at

I think Mayor Nanny Bloomie is a very arrogant man. I also highly doubt he rides the subway that much. He's the mayor, I want someone driving him around so he can work and make calls and stuff. New Yorkers shouldn't want him wasting all that time on the subway.

We all have to wonder what Bloomberg is really thinking of with this congestion pricing tax scheme. Maybe he mostly just wants a new tax. Just wrap it up in ‘concern for the environment’, and then people can just demonize those who oppose it.

If he cares so much about traffic jams, congestion and air pollution, why does he let Park Avenue be blocked off? Why doesn’t he do anything about that?

It's true, Pershing Square Restaurant blocks Park Avenue going South at 42nd St. for about 12 hours a day/5 months of the year! This Causes Massive Congestion and Air Pollution!

But apparently it does not bother NYC’s Nanny-in-Chief Mike “Congestion Pricing Tax” Bloomberg?

It certainly supports his claim that the city is hugely congested.

Check out the map! Tell your friends!
