Everything about commuting in NYC.
I have been commuting into work and riding the MTA 7 train for many years, in those years I have seen and heard many things. Too many to remember and for years I said I was going to write about it. Well today is the first of what could be a series of some of the fun things I see and hear on my way to work riding the 7 train.
Hey New Yorkers, the Nostalgia Train got you to the Mets game as New York City prepared to ‘Shea’ goodbye to Shea Stadium. On Sunday, September 28, 2008 New York City Transit rolled out its vintage Nostalgia Train along the 7 line in commemoration of the final regular season home game at Shea.
If you are a New Yorker and take public transportation, you knew this was coming sooner rather than later. The MTA has announced an upcoming fare increase for most MTA commuters. The increase is scheduled to go into effect on March 22nd, 2015. Here is what you need to know.
The New York Mets today announced the club will celebrate the life and legacy of legendary broadcaster Ralph Kiner during an on-field, pre-game ceremony on Opening Day at Citi Field Monday, March 31 prior to the game versus the National League East rival Washington Nationals at 1:10 p.m. The ceremony will include a video tribute and the unveiling of the Kiner commemorative logo above the leftfield wall. Kiner’s children Michael, K.C., Tracee and Kimberlee, will attend and participate in the ceremony. The Kiner logo will also be painted on the grass behind home plate.
