What Congestion Taxers Do Not Want You to Know
Congestion Pricing Will Hurt Middle Class New Yorkers Across the Region.
Neighborhoods in Upper Manhattan and just across the East River like Downtown Brooklyn, Williamsburg, Long Island City, Astoria, and Sunnyside will be flooded with commuters looking to park nearby and hop on the subway. Parking spaces – and space on the subways – will vanish for these residents.
Commuters by car from Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester counties already face brutal property taxes at home – now they’ll face another tax as they head to work.
Communities with little access to subways have many commuters who are forced to commute by car. Congestion Pricing will be another unfair tax on this under served population.
