Transit Strike Movement?

MTA and transit union officials arrived at Grand Hyatt around 1 a.m. Thursday morning and are reportedly, at 4 a.m. still in the same building and may be talking -- to each other.

If there is any agreement -- or even if the TWU just agrees to continue talking while ending the walkout -- it will take a minimum of 12 hours to get the system up and running. That means Thursday evening rush hour at the earliest for things to get back to normal.

And it was way too soon to be even thinking about that.

Given that the ugly specter of race raised its head on Wednesday, all New Yorkers have their fingers crossed that this situation ends before it gets really ugly.
