NYC Editorial: Transportation mess is driving this brewery owner to drink. Congestion pricing would help get workers in and beer out

We no longer hold our employees to an eight-hour day. It is impossible to expect them to be at work by 9 a.m.

Brooklyn Brewery and thousands of other businesses in the metropolitan area rely on the ability of people and goods to move around, on roads and trains, above and below ground. Some of my employees bike to work, but most take public transportation. Our distributors pick up beer from the brewery in Brooklyn and one upstate and then struggle through the city’s poorly maintained and traffic-choked streets to deliver it.
