NEW YORK | Various News About Our City and Q&A

Parts of Manhattan will almost certainly go car free, but not the entirety of the city. Also yeah, (ICE) cars cause ridiculous amounts of pollution.

I think it won’t really affect the Taxi, Uber, and Lyft services since it’s only parts of Manhattan. And not to mention the East River bridges and tunnels connecting Manhattan from Queens and Brooklyn

The biggest thing is getting car traffic out of sight and out of mind. That means building new expressways, either by tunnel or viaduct, that can work to open up the surface-level streets more.

Ah, like similar to a 20th-century vision of car traffic being underground while people walking above ground?

Very much in that vein, or car traffic being built above ground on viaducts/guideways, I mean that’s always an option if you don’t want to build and maintain ventilation shafts. In fact, I could name 4 highways right off the bat that I would love to see either built or rebuilt, namely the West Side elevated highway, the Lower Manhattan expressway, the Midtown Manhattan expressway, and the Cross Harlem expressway.

Rangers come back from 1-3 in Round 1 and win Game 7 Overtime in MSG to advance to Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Their last bout was in 2015. The Knicks snapped the MSG playoff drought last year but lost in the first round against the Atlanta Hawks
