I guess I'm dating myself because I feel like the EWR station just opened and I know the NERL died a longg time ago. Shame that never came to fruition, bringing light rail down the McCarter or Broad Street corridors in Newark and through downtown Elizabeth could have done wonders for both of these areas. Shame not enough campaign contributors in these areas to make it happen.

Also United is lobbying for it. And if the deals with United and the PA were under the table, whatever, sometimes that is the ONLY way things get done in this broken system.
