In Testimony, Squadron Lays Out Ideas for Improved Access, Including Off-Site Vehicle Screening and MTA Bus Service Through Site
NEW YORK -- This week, State Senator Daniel Squadron submitted testimony on the draft World Trade Center Campus Security Plan, arguing that it is possible to increase access to and passage through the site while ensuring security.
"The design and rebuilding of the site after September 11th, 2001, promised a reconnection to the grid. With a booming residential and commercial population in Battery Park City, Greenwich South, Tribeca, and the Financial District, it is as important as ever that the site is woven into the fabric of Lower Manhattan," said Squadron.

BROOKLYN -- Today, State Senator Daniel Squadron welcomed the Port Authority's approval of an agreement to bring shore power to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook.
The agreement, which was reached over a year ago at the urging of Senator Squadron and other community leaders but was not approved until today, will allow cruise ships to plug into the electrical grid rather than burning diesel fuels while idling at the port. The Port Authority expects implementation to be completed by 2014.
