    You must not have gotten very good grades on your book reports...

    I love that they explicitly state that it is for pensions, debt payments, and healthcare.

    Ah, unions...

    i wouldn't mind a small increase if the cut in service for my line wasn't so blatantly obvious.

    Both the NY Giants and NY Jets ('just end the season" ) originally both played and are incorporated in NYC.

    Trashing NJ is easy but they do have something good. There are a lot of I-Hops in NJ.
    I like breakfast at night sometimes, so I think of NJ then.

    i just spent a few days in nyc, was a lot of fun, but i don't understand why everything, everywhere, is filthy and broken. the humidity is pretty unpleasant too. you guys have good food though, and can't beat the shopping.

    I would agree that everything is broken, but filthy, no, as major cities go, it's remarkably clean. 20 years ago it was filthy.

    last week, it was blistering hot, and yet Park Ave. was flooded with tourists, more than usual it seemed. I don't understand why people come here for vacation in the middle of July.

    really? I dunno, compared to dc everything seems to have a grey, smoggy pall - random puddles of water, garbage in the streets. admittedly i wasn't on the UWS, but around 20 - 30th.

    was als surprised (probably shouldn't be) at how gross penn station was.

    also was this week just especially horrible when it comes to humidity? richmond is always pretty shitty though, so I don't think its an nyc-only complaint.

    They were probably trying to get some sun ! In Midtown you cannot see it unless its high noon.

    I don't know. My theory is they're always there, but it was so hot that NYers did everything possible to not be outside, so it made the tourists' presense seem more noticeable.
