MTA to buy Grand Central Terminal, Harlem and Hudson lines

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority's (MTA) finance committee yesterday approved the purchase of Grand Central Terminal in New York City and MTA Metro-North Railroad's Harlem and Hudson lines from Midtown Trackage Ventures LLC for $35 million.

The purchase would end the MTA's 280-year lease of Grand Central and give Metro-North "unencumbered control" of its operating environment, MTA officials said in a press release.

But, but, but, that would be the opposite of 280 years of privatization.
