|Welcome to Joe's Country|
Your correspondent has long been an advocate for tolls--on aesthetic rather than fiscal grounds. I led the unsuccessful Restore All Tolls movement in Connecticut after those beautiful shingle-roofed Merritt Parkway toll houses were eliminated in 1988. Where were the highway architeture preservationists?! You can still visit one such toll house, though not drive through it, in (yes!) Boothe Park in Stamford. A fine model for the new BQE toll houses, I'd say. So start saving the nickels and dimes. If we raise enough from the new BQE tolls, maybe we can build the Brodsky Bridge after all!
