It’s about time. Now if they only would do it for subways too. And maybe people can be trained not to walk down into the subway when they see people coming up (don’t they know a train has just arrived and left the station?!).
Back in June, I posted an idea (or rather two) on how to improve the NYC Subways. I still haven’t found the MTA suggestion box, but I do have a NYC Subway Improvement Idea for July. This time it’s just a borrowed idea from my travels.
Being a city-dweller, I was a fan of congestion pricing to reduce traffic, but I understand why it could not pass for NYC in the state capitol. Nonetheless I like the stick-to-it-ness of the mayor to find ways to make the city greener.
Last weekend I was walking home and saw that one of the stores in my neighborhood had been cloned and flattened. I greatly enjoyed the marketing prank and looked forward to the punch line the next day, not yet sure what they were selling. Sure enough, the butcher was back on Monday, it’s full dimensionality entact, albeit a little eyesore in the window completing the marketing. A lot of work for the few who saw it, but I appreciated my glimpse.
You’d think people would recognize that when there is a swarm of people coming up the subway stairs, it means that a train has recently arrived. Which also usually means that same train has left the station, so there is no reason for them to go down the stairs until everyone else has exited. But the people don’t seem to realize this and it just isn’t going to happen.
It’s a beautiful day in New York. We like everyone else, seemed to be out walking. We went through quite a few bottles of water. And then just threw them in the trash.
