, New York Law Journal


Supreme Court Justice Cynthia Kern said the Department of Transportation's decision to put the rack across from the national historic landmark's entrance was not arbitrary and capricious and complied with relevant environmental laws.

    Agree completely with Sid‘s comment. EIS reviews are routinely pro forma and offer little in-depth analysis of actual uses and street life. To say nothing about the fact that the architectural beauty of The Plaza is forever marred by bike racks that can be located anywhere else, despite the purported compliance with the litany of factors. Just because one can, doesn‘t mean one should.

  • Sid

    It‘s not arbitrary or capricious; but, it sucks. Some places should be allowed to retain their beauty and ambiance. This judge would approve Stalinist era massive ugly blocks in lovely residential areas if not arbitrary or capricious. Legally, the judge is correct. But the judge would never be reelected in a jurisdiction with taste. Regretfully, voters have the memories of gnats.
