From Chelsea to Corona: Public Cost and Public Benefit in the New Public Park 29.8.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Five years ago this summer, the first section of the High Line, from Gansevoort Street to West 20th Street in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, opened to the public. The success of this project - a disused freight rail line transformed into a beautifully designed and landscaped linear park - has prompted efforts in a variety of cities to follow suit. Philadelphia's Reading Viaduct, Chicago's Bloomingdale Trail, and the West Toronto Railpath are just a few of the proposals to repurpose infrastructural relics into public greenways. Within New York City, projects like the QueensWay, a 3.5-mile stretch of abandoned railway in Central Queens, and the Lowline, an underground trolley terminal in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, also seek to replicate the High Line's almost magical combination of effective grass roots organizing, savvy real estate economics, and high quality design. All of these projects adopt the High Line's appealing rhetoric of historic preservation: turning a reminder of a city's industrial ...

Mitch McConnell: 'I Am The Guy That Gets Us Out Of Shutdowns' 28.8.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
WASHINGTON -- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) dismissed any notions about allowing another federal government shutdown if Republicans retake the upper chamber next year. "Oh, I did rule it out. Remember me? I am the guy that gets us out of shutdowns," McConnell told CNN in a Wednesday interview . "I'm the guy that's gotten us out of the shutdowns that some of our members have pushed us into in the past." "It's a failed policy," he said of brinkmanship over government funding bills. The Kentucky Republican sought to tamp down fears about another costly fiscal standoff after Congress returns from recess next month, fanned in part by Democrats this week . Lawmakers will have just 10 working days to agree to a continuing resolution before funding passed earlier this year expires on Oct. 1, raising the possibility of a political crisis ahead of the midterm elections. In an interview with Politico earlier this month, McConnell struck a more defiant tone. He promised to use spending bills to ...

Steve King: 'All Bets Are Off' On Government Shutdown If Obama Acts On Immigration 28.8.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
WASHINGTON -- One of the most vehement opponents of comprehensive immigration reform said Wednesday that he supports a tactic that could lead to another federal government shutdown. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said that "all bets are off" about the fate of a continuing resolution to fund the government if President Barack Obama decides to unilaterally take action to provide deportations relief for undocumented immigrants. "If the president wields his pen and commits that unconstitutional act to legalize millions, I think that becomes something that is nearly political nuclear," King said, according to the Des Moines Register . "I think the public would be mobilized and galvanized and that changes the dynamic of any continuing resolution and how we might deal with that." If the president takes action on immigration, as he is expected to do later this fall , King said that Republicans should push for the passage of House legislation on border security to become a "requirement" in exchange for funding the ...

Democrats Warn GOP About Risking Another Government Shutdown 27.8.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
WASHINGTON -- With growing talk about another potential government shutdown , Democrats this week are launching a new website to remind Republicans about their promises to avoid a similar scenario before Washington lurched to a halt last year. The website, titled " Shutdown Broken Promises ," will highlight statements made by Republicans last year vowing to avoid a government shutdown. The first promise, made by Rep. Martha Roby (R-Ala.) in August, was followed by her vote against a deal to end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling just a few months later. "The American people won’t make the mistake again of trusting this Republican Congress not to put us through unnecessary worry. It’s time for real action, not just empty rhetoric," the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said in a statement. Despite assurances by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that House Republicans would not shut down the government , the tactic is finding a receptive audience among some of their ...
