Well, it’s about that time of the year where Con Ed fully rolls out it’s annual tips for conserving energy.  This year, they’ve blessed us with 100 Tips (by number) for saving electricity.
By the looks of things, they may need us to conserve if their crews walk out on strike, but I digress.

No, I’m not kidding.
Soleil, the newest straphanger, was born right on the F train platform.
Her mom was on the F train when Soleil decided she wanted OUT. A fellow passenger helped her to the platform when when her water broke.
As if in a movie, a nurse stopped to coach her through the birth [...]

Honestly, there’s about 20 square feet of the entire 59th Street station complex that’s NOT under construction.

They are the ads with photos of feet including hammertoes, blisters, bunions, etc. And the graphics look like they were done in 1983.

The last thing I [...]

I just bought a new Metrocard, and was again reminded of how badly we monthy unlimited users were hosed in the fare hike.
I only bring it up because of yesterday’s news of a $3 billion deficit in the MTA budget.
Where the hell is all the money going? If there are millions of [...]

Just when you thought some serious decisions were finally going to be made in Albany about all things transportation in NYC, Spitzer had to get caught with his pants down.
