It was an uneven contest, yesterday. At a Hudson
River pier were the big names of New York Society
to say Westway's day had come. I am pleased I
lived to see this day, said Mayor Edward I. Koch.
But several blocks away, opponents differed.
The case is not over, said Gene Russianoff with
the Straphangers Campaign. Westway will be
fought in the courts and the Congress.
