NY Times highlights new SandyGate details and "pressure" on mayor and Hoboken

The Metro section of the NY Times is often overlooked but while many disagree with the editorial focus appearing on the front page too often, the metropolitan coverage continues to shine.

While many news outlets are doing short and often inaccurate analysis on Hoboken and the issues surrounding the mayor and the ongoing federal investigation into SandyGate, the NY Times story uncovers new information and efforts between two major developers trying to get a foothold in Hoboken: NJ Transit and the Rockefeller group and and all without the City's or mayor's knowledge.

Highly recommended.
