    So NY State will drive you across the Tappan Zee Bridge (in your own car, natch) if you’re scared of bridges, but they won’t offer a bike shuttle? Apparently all that utilitarianism stuff (the greatest good for the greatest number, etc.) I learned in college goes by the wayside when there are frightened drivers to assist.

    Nor will they allow you to hitchhike a ride over (important for hikers en route to the Appalachian Trail)…

  • The MTA previewed that capital campaign in November at the public engagement workshop. It’s good to see that amNew York is so on top of the news.

    The S.I. article is pretty goofy in that it pretends like the only way off the island is by car.
