The M.T.A. Backs the Jets

The M.T.A. approving the sale of the railyards on the West Side is far from the last hurdle standing in the way of the construction of the new Jets stadium that Mayor Bloomberg hopes to make the centerpiece his plans for rebuilding much of the city. And of course New York might not even win this summer's vote that will determine which city will host the 2012 Olympics, so it's extremely premature to talk about the stadium as the home of those games, or even the 2010 Super Bowl that Paul Tagliabue has promised will be held in New York if the city and Woddy Johnson can get the thing built by 2009. Nevertheless, for proponents of the stadium, this is an important step and a big day.
