|deathbgothic||02:23 pm - TWO WHOLE WEEKS IN NYC!|
Hey there NewYorkers!
My name is Ludo, and I am leaving tomorrow for the Big Apple!
I will be in the Bronx watching a friends house, dog and cat for two weeks.
I will admit, I am incredibly nervous and a bit scared about being all alone in the big city.
I currently live in Kent Washington, and will be arriving at JFK somewhere around330 your time.
so here are my questions:
Mainly, what are some highlights i should look out for?
Where is a good place to connect with people. (I really want to hang out with some people and not be totally alone the entire time I'm in NY)
What are some good cheap places to eat in the area?
Any areas I should avoid, especially after dark?
Anywho, hopefully I get some responses before i have to crash out tonight, early rising to get to my plane on time :)
Hope to hear from you!

|futurebird||10:11 am - An Open Letter to The Hon. Ruben Diaz, Sr.|
I'm just so angry about this. Their "alternative" plan to fund the MTA was a joke! If we went with that plan we'd be in the same shape we are not in a year or so. I don't understand why Ruben Diaz is on the wrong side of this issue-- Who is he looking out for by doing this?
An Open Letter to The Hon. Ruben Diaz, Sr.:
Dear Senator Diaz:
Mass transit is the life blood of the Bronx. The last time people forgot this and the state failed to adequately invest in the MTA’s capital needs, they tore down the Third Avenue Elevated subway line in 1973. It was one of the worst things to ever happen to your district. Do you remember the 1970s housing abandonment, arson, job loss and population loss in Melrose, Morrisania and Mott Haven? The loss of mass transit was one of the main reasons this happened.
Senator Diaz, this is serious, and it needs your serious attention. The MTA capital program funds the maintenance and rehabilitation of the Bronx’s subway lines and stations.
Why you would ignore Bronx mass transit riders so that wealthy Connecticut and Westchester commuters can drive through your district for free, causing asthma and degrading neighborhood streets with traffic, is baffling and infuriating.
Who do you represent?
The Hon. Pedro Espada, Jr.
The Hon. Carl Kruger
The Hon. Hiram Monserrate
The Hon. Malcolm Smith, Senate Majority Leader

Here's the deal:
The MTA needs money since the Pataki administration left them in a state where they have this huge debit. State lawmakers have a choice:
1) Service cuts and a fare hike.
2) Toll the East river bridges to pay for transit.
