B-Roll & Photos: Governor Cuomo Tours Canarsie Tunnel Ahead of L Train Shutdown

TOP B-Roll & Photos: Governor Cuomo Tours...

Governor Cuomo: "I want to make sure as Governor of the State of New York that I can look New Yorkers in the eye and say we have gone through the project, we have gone through the project with the best minds on the globe and this is the best way to do it and the fastest way to do it."

WYSIWYG

Early this morning, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo toured the L Train's Canarsie Tunnel with engineering experts including leadership from Cornell University's College of Engineering and Columbia University's Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science.

 

Governor Cuomo: I want to make sure as Governor of the State of New York that I can look New Yorkers in the eye and say we have gone through the project, we have gone through the project with the best minds on the globe and this is the best way to do it and the fastest way to do it. I need, personally, to feel confident in that decision, and frankly, I don't want to hear it secondhand. I want to see it for myself, and I want to have the best minds we can find, because this is very technical, who review what the plan is and if there's a better way of doing it, they tell us there's a better way of doing it. If there's not a better way of doing it, they say that's the best that it can be done.
