    I don't think being far from the center of Manhattan is bad at all. It's close to the 7 train and the LIRR; you could even run ferry service to the marina if you want. The badly maintained part is...

    Just like every other line in the city at some point. Besides, it has its quiet points. I've ridden it late at night (assuming there's no service disruptions), with seats available.

    That's only because it's never been given the respect it deserves. I've only been there a couple of times, but it's always well used by the surrounding immigrant neighborhoods. However, whenever the...

    Queens Crossing continues on a slow pace. Despite an original Fall 2006 completion date, it has been pushed back to Fall of this year. I passed by there today and they only are now removing the wood...

    I was there around the 4 this afternoon walking toward Grand Central. I couldn't figure out what was happening until I heard some guy yakking on his cellphone that a man had jumped.

    They're still around. They were bought out by A&P and largely remains a chain in Brooklyn/Queens and Long Island.

    Haha, this is what the NIMBY's wanted. Really short-sighted, especially limiting height to be below the clock tower. I hope Markowitz is happy.

    Maybe he and Osama can battle it out. It could even be a Pay-Per-View event.

    Then more needs to be done to explain that congestion pricing is more than just a "toll."

    The funds will be used to improve mass transit like increasing service or extending subway lines, or even...

    Oh, I agree you; I just didn't clarify myself initially. Congestion pricing will only easy motor traffic in the city and make it safer for everyone else.

    Pedicabs are hardly a threat to the city when you have private cars blazing up and down the streets. Let's see the city bring congestion charging to the table and then we should worry about pedicabs...

    So you think generating $188 million dollars and reducing traffic in the city for a day isn't preferable to drawing more traffic?



    Traffic congestion affects everyone even if you don't drive.
