Wendell Jamieson, editor of The New York Times’ metro section, has decided that more attention needs to be paid to the city’s transportation and infrastructure. Thus, he has created a team to tackle that issue.
Jamieson—in a memo obtained by Politico—described New York’s transportation and infrastructure as one of the “most pressing issues” facing the city.
“New York City, as you all know I believe, is the greatest city in the world,” Jamieson wrote. “We can cover it like it IS the world, digging deep into issues that affect all urban centers around the globe. When the story warrants, these journalists will travel the country, and even beyond, to explore transportation and infrastructure challenges, and see what New York can learn from other cities.”
