Descripción

Charles B. Jenkins. Traffic Congestion in the City of New York as Related to the Operation of Interstate Buses within the Borough of Manhattan, 1940. Provenance: Library of Congress, this copy transferred from Copyright, April 30, 1940. 11x8.5", Nice copy. +++ I'm pretty sure that this is a xth generation carbon copy and not an offset printed affair--there are definite impressions on the back of the sheets that certainly feel as though they and several other sheets of paper were sent though a typewriter in 1940.+++55pp, including 16 maps. This is a proposal to remedy a traffic problem in Manhattan caused by interstate buses, and that proposal would wind up being the Port Authority Bus Terminal. The building square-block building would be opened in December 1950 after two and a half years under construction (about the same amount of time it is taking to fix the exits around the Asheville Regional Airport). "By 1939, growing interstate bus traffic was causing chaos in New York City. Buses would drive to and from eight separate bus terminals scattered throughout Midtown. Congestion was a major problem, and the City needed a good answer. Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia appointed a committee of City officials to resolve the issue. The committee arrived at several solutions, which were quickly shot down by the City's smaller bus terminals. That's when the Mayor asked the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, established in 1921, to promote and protect the commerce of the bi-state region, to evaluate the concept of consolidating all smaller bus stations into one central terminal."-Port Authority of New York and New Jersey website, history of the Port Authority Bus Terminal. If you're interested in Manhattan, or buses, or city planning, or the Honeymooners, you'll like this document.+++NO COPIES located in WorldCat/OCLC. N° de ref. de la librería ABE-1470019165868
