That's just weird unless it was part of a school project.

FM radio is so unbelievably bad here. The airwaves are dominated by Latin urban techno-pop, as if every other listener out there is DJ'ing a dance floor in the basement of a Puerto Rican bodega.

^ I have a secret fondness for the aural abomination known as freestyle or Miami bass, and New York is the only city I know of that plays the genre regularly on FM radio.

We just drove up to Stone Barns and one the ride back to the city I was thinking how underrated the NYC landscape and setting is. People always think about Times Square and Soho but driving down the Henry Hudson Parkway and the riverside, with red and yellow trees everywhere, the palisades, the GW bridge, etc... It's just a great scenery. Add a sunset to that and it's pretty awesome - something about the sunsets over NJ that is particularly nice for a city sight - must be the toxic fumes in the air... laugh.gif

I like the view of the Palisades as you cross the GW into NJ

The Taconic State Parkway is also quite a scenic drive.

If they're expecting the storm to land on Monday, why are they closing the subway today?

Big rain is supposed to start today. Some lines will surely flood but are they closing the whole system?

Governor Cuomo Directs MTA to Move Forward with System-wide Shutdown
The MTA has been directed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to begin an orderly shutdown and suspension of all subway, bus and commuter railroad service at 7 p.m. Sunday. The decision was made to protect customers, employees and equipment from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy as the strong storm continues its march up the east coast.

MTA Chairman and CEO Joseph J. Lhota announced that service on NYC Transit subways will be curtailed beginning at 7 p.m., and the bus network within the following two hours. Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad will start their final trains by 7 p.m. from terminal locations. Subway and rail road stations will be closed after the last trains pass through stations. Outbound Access-A-Ride trips are being scheduled only until 12 p.m. today, and return trips will continue until 5 p.m. Any previously scheduled trips after that time, including subscription trips, are canceled.

Customers are advised to adjust their plans and travel early in the day as possible and not wait until the last train or bus. Anyone who does not leave for their destination before 7 p.m. runs the risk of being stranded when service is suspended.

The MTA Hurricane Plan calls for suspending service hours before the approach of winds of 39 mph and higher. That gives MTA crews time to prepare rail and subway cars, buses, tunnels, yards and buildings for the storm, then return to safety. Winds of 39 mph and higher are predicted to reach the metropolitan region during the predawn hours Monday.

The MTA has been preparing to suspend service for days by readying recovery equipment, clearing drainage areas, moving vehicles from low-lying areas at bus depots and rail yards and sealing some tunnel access points.

The duration of the service suspension is unknown, and there is no timetable for restoration. Service will be restored only when it is safe to do so, after careful inspections of all equipment and tracks. Even with minimal damage this is expected to be a lengthy process.

Customers and the media should monitor this website or call 511 for the most current service information.
