Rae has been directly involved in representing Governor Cuomo during the passage of New York State's first Design/Build legislation, coordinating transportation agencies efforts to expedite environmental review and procurement of the Tappan Zee Bridge project.
Sensors that passively record the air quality in your home, your heart rate at the gym and the moment you cross the Tappan Zee Bridge will capture an unprecedentedly "holistic picture" of your behavior and your environment, says Shawn G.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo exemplifies that trend among cash-strapped governments: in order to create jobs and aid the state's ailing economy, he is eyeing union pension funds to finance major projects, such as rebuilding the Tappan Zee Bridge.
Scanning the panorama south to north, the George Washington Bridge is visible in the distance, then the Palisades rise cross-river and the stretch of the Tappan Zee Bridge joins the sprawling hills of the Hudson Valley upriver.
We ended up going home the next day instead, and the trip across the Tappan Zee bridge was like a funeral procession, as every car slowly idled across, heads turned toward Manhattan and the huge column of brown-gray smoke that rose from the city and smeared across the sky.
