Peter Kalikow is stepping down as chairman of the MTA. The Journal News has all the info, along with some tidbits on Kalikow: he once owned the New York Post, he collects Ferraris, and he–THE HEAD OF THE METROPOLITAN TRANSIT AUTHORITY–rides to work in a chauffered Town Car.
The legacy Kalikow leaves behind includes the 2nd Avenue subway, which is slated to open in time for New York to host the 2072 Olympics.
The MTA website has nothing about Kalikow’s announcement. Its top news stories include months-old releases on Public Art in the Bronx and upgrades to the train station in Beacon. Their communications are about as efficient as the subway intercom.
