New York Pizza!

Pizza in New York is famous around the world and I know first hand why – it is delicious! There is just something about a Brooklyn Style pie that gets me going and has made me fall in love over and over. Now, I have never had the luxury of living in the City or in New York for that matter, but I have been lucky enough to visit time and time again. The very FIRST thing I do after arriving at JFK Airport is head straight for a local Pizza joint!

I personally do not even have a favorite pizza place, I love them ALL in New York. So I continually try to go around to different pizza places and try them all. Sometimes if you head on in and ask the for their “specialty” slices you will be blown away by what they come up with. Not to mention how damn good it tastes!

Do not worry, Pizza will NOT be the only New York thing we will be blogging about here. But we plan on keeping it fun and interesting tso follow us on our journey blogging about New York New York!

New York Transportation p. II

With high hopes that the New York City mayor will reconsider his position against paying for improvements to the subway, the governor has proposed splitting the cost of the improvements between the state and the city. Many proponents of the subway improvement plan hope for this, but there is still a significant chance that the mayor will reject the plan. Of note are allegations that the state has seized a sizeable amount of money from the authority in charge of repairing and maintaining the subway; this is the crux of the mayor’s argument against paying for the improvements. In his eyes, the money necessary has already been seized by the state.

Repeated criticism of the growing transport crisis in New York related to the subway system is likely putting a significant amount of pressure on the mayor to relent and agree to pay a portion of the cost of the improvement program. Whether or not the allegations of the state already has seized the money are unfounded, it may soon become irrelevant. If action is not taken to improve the situation relatively soon, then the crisis may grow to the point where the mayor no longer has any position to argue against paying for the improvement. From a purely political statement, the governor has his work cut out for him with influencing the mayor and his people to support a local payment for the subway improvements as opposed to a state sponsored solution.

From all appearances, the subway improvement plan will go through. Over a period of years, the subway system is hoped to undergo a complete revamp, from adding cars to an increasing room to improving the digital aspect of the system. With the proposed dashboard, passengers can more closely and accurately monitor the status of their train. With better signals, operators can more safely and efficiently conduct their trains. And with a complete subway system, transit as a whole in New York should thankfully improve.
