    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.

    Lots of shitty stations but WBGO is so good for jazz.

    Do you guys get tornado activity much? Growing up in tornado alley that was always bothersome.

    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:

    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?
