Planning for the future of New York could start very close to home. The PlaNYC 2030 Commission — the group formed by Mayor Bloomberg to find ways to sustain the city’s growth over the next 23 years — is calling on Con Edison to make some steam plants, like this one on Hudson Avenue in Vinegar Hill, more efficient and cleaner.
“We’re talking about it,” said Con Ed spokesman Chris Olert. “But it could be a few months before we have any sort of plan.”
Residents of Vinegar Hill like the idea of a cleaner power plant. “Sounds good to me,” said one.
