The ARC Tunnel (Access to the Region's Core) leads the conversation in Part 2 of the discussion of transportation with Robert Paaswell, director of the CCNY Institute of Urban Systems. New rail tunnels between New Jersey and Manhattan were considered important to the growth of the area. Construction for the The ARC Tunnel begun in 2009, was cancelled in 2010 by Governor Chris Christie, citing the cost of overruns.
