ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York transit officials say they’ll reconsider advertising standards after a top aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo objected to a cleavage-baring subway ad for breast enhancement.

Howard Glaser, Cuomo’s director of state operations, wrote to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority asking the agency to take action. Glaser noted in his letter that thousands of children use the transit system every day and that riders should be able to expect a “family friendly” environment on the subway.

An MTA spokesman said in a statement the agency understands the governor’s concerns and will review its advertising standards.

The Daily News first reported on the subway ad and Glaser’s letter Tuesday.
