NYU Wagner Rudin Center Weighs in On Proposed Alternatives to NYC Congestion Pricing Plan

NYU Wagner Rudin Center Weighs in On Proposed Alternatives to NYC Congestion Pricing Plan

In a new report, NYU Wagner Rudin Center’s Director, Allison C. de Cerreño, along with Jeffrey Zupan of the Regional Plan Association and Robert Paaswell of Region 2 University Transportation Research Center at City University of New York, weigh in on Mayor Bloomberg’s proposed congestion pricing pilot program in a paper critiquing several proposed alternatives. Among the ideas evaluated are license-plate rationing, truck reduction strategies, and a variety of incremental traffic management proposals. While several of these alternatives meet one or two of the Mayor’s goals of congestion reduction, improved air quality, and revenue generation for transit, none of them addresses all three as effectively as the pilot could. The report concludes that without congestion pricing, “none of the proposed alternatives can achieve the gains in public health, economic prosperity and quality of life that all sides desire.”

NYU Wagner Students' Mapping Project Lands First Prize in GIS Competition

NYU Wagner Students' Mapping Project Lands First Prize in GIS Competition

Two students in the Master of Urban Planning (MUP) degree program at NYU Wagner have come away from the recent GIS Day at New York University as first-place winners for their thought-provoking, urban mapping project. Congratulations to Jorge Hernandez and Sam Levy for their success!

For the 2014 GIS Day Competition, hosted by NYU Libraries DataServices on Nov. 19, Levy and Hernandez submitted a map evaluating the effect that proximity to a subway station may have on average rents paid. While it may be a widely held belief that high rents are closely related with proximity to subway stations, their analysis showcases the complexity of the rental market in NYC. Three of the five boroughs do not show a clear relationship between rent and proximity to subway stations; however, patterns emerge in Brooklyn and Staten Island. On average, rents in Brooklyn increase as you get closer to a subway station, while in Staten Island the opposite holds true.

GIS Day @ NYU celebrates, builds, and nurtures the General  Information Systems community at the University by highlighting mapping resources and research. The yearly event in Bobst Library’s 5th Floor Research Commons is designed to promote the value of GIS tools and to highlight outstanding spatial projects.
