About that Metro North Station ...

Remember that eleventh-hour promise of a Metro North station at Yankee Stadium as the debate over the Bombers' new ballpark boiled over last year around this time? Well, don't plan to take the train to the game just yet. The New York Observer, echoing Real Estate Weekly, reports that the costs are much greater than expected. So, according to the Observer's blog, Borough President Carrion "wants to let a developer build 'an extensive mixed-use development' on top of the station in return for paying for the station's construction."
By the way, there's a lot of recent action on the anti-stadium Save Our Parks Web site, including Joyce Hogi's testimony to a Congressional committee studying stadium financing.
