Was anyone delayed by the wall collapse on Lexington in the 30’s today?
Apparently, there was a 10 foot wall that collapsed at a construction site.  Emergency officials evacuated a neighboring building as a precaution because they feared that the ground movement might make the foundation of that building unstable.  It wasn’t really that bad though.

MTA’s officials gave the press tours of the new South Ferry station that is expected to open next month.
Many reporters made comments about how clean it was, as it it were a hospital wing.  The fancy new station cost about $500 million to build directly under the current South Ferry station.

I can only imagine how long the lines are going to be tomorrow.  There’s going to be way more people than anyone expected voting tomorrow, so I [...]

We were reminded today by NYCtheBlog that the MTA regularly sells off stuff that they no longer want including your lost and found items.  Then again, I guess if you never claim your lost items, they really aren’t yours anymore but I digress.
You can buy everything from toll lane scrubbers (little Zamboni looking things), to [...]
