  1. That looks pretty mean. That's some state of the art architectural design as it shows here. How fast does these trains go in km/h or MPH? What are the model names for these light rail trains?


    Jerusalem Light Rail (46 trams)


    Operating speed - 80 km/h (50 mph)


    Rolling stock - Alstom Citadis 302 (France)


    After repeated delays due to archaeological findings and other issues, service began, initially free of charge, on August 19, 2011. It became fully operative on December 1, 2011. The line is 13.9 kilometers (8.6 mi) long with 23 stops. Extensions are planned to the north to Neve Yaakov and to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital to the southwest. When completed, these will extend the line's length to 22.5km.


    BTW, unlike in Europe, in Jerusalem tram is double rolling stock, what makes Jerusalem tram 2 times longer than Europeinian.

    CUNY is one of the biggest public universities in the United States, and like Realizm said, some of the CUNY schools are among the best in the country, depending on what you seek to obtain your degree in.

    Keep looking around for schools, and check out the CUNY website for international students/applicants.


    Good luck!


    Thanks! I don't know, if i will ever more study in my life, although i love architecture and engineering and its what i'd like to do in my life (except transportation), just love how cities constructed, urbanization, bridges, tunnels, roads, buildings etc. And the studies just a one of the ways to come to the USA, and as normal human i'd like to get higher education (i just finished high school), but i don't think i have a chances to study in most greatest city ever as New York... at least it sounds to me fantastic...... 



    I have a colleague of mine who is married to a beautiful girl who is now officially a red blooded Israeli-American woman, she went through this exact process I've described. She had to take waitressing work off the books and go to Boro of Manhattan Community College on a student visa then City College in Manhattan all at the same time. She then went for alien resident status and was granted that status in a lottery. It took her 3 years in change to realize her dream career AND her man of her dreams. Now she is in forensics. She's only 26 years old! So dude this is a viable option. But your game plan sounds solid to me, do what you gotta do and keep it moving, you will find success with perseverance!


    Edit: To add to what IntExp just posted simuntaneously as I posted, BMCC has an ESL program too which got her foot in the door (My colleague's wife) forgot to mention that

    Thanks, btw good idea, get married american girl :lol:

    And im playing in green card lottery too..... 3 years.... not lucky yet....  :( even have 3 refuses to U.S. tourist visa.... so i really dont know what to do.. nothing except illegal staying doesn't comes to my mind.... for example just to come to the USA as tourist and just don't back home...... or through Canada (if ill get 4th refusal to tourist visa), next year ill get Israel passport, and it's means that i dont need visa to Canada, i heard about people who helps to pass Canadian - U.S. border for money.. yep, sounds crazy but im just tired to wait while my U.S. dream comes true.

  3. I have an idea on that:


    Why don't you consider taking up a student visa and come to NY through the City University of New York (a network of community colleges and universities, some ranking as the best schools in the nation) ?


    Look at this official link: http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/types/types_1268.html


    You should go and apply, it's a lengthy process but it would be a legit way to get the foot in the door sort of speak as a foreign exchange student. 


    Then go for alien resident status through US Citizenship and Immigration Services via the US Dept of State.

    It's a process I know but you can do it if you have enough passion to enjoy the benefits of living in the Big Apple and realizing your dreams.


    Yes, i tried to go to Yeshiva University in Harlem (North Manhattan), and we are even communicated by email, so i understood that i dont have possibility to go there (financial reasons, cuz study is very expensive there), even if i will luck for International Financial Aid Application i have to pay for room and meal... so i don't think this is good idea.


    May be it different for the City University of New York, in the truth i dont know other universities except Yeshiva University, although if all the question that i need study visa - i can to try to get it through one of many yeshivas in Brooklyn (visa type F1), but i for US Citizenship and Immigration Services i will need to have reasons to stay in the USA.

  4. No kidding! Many of my professional clients are Jewish.


    I need to look into learning some hebrew and yiddish phrases to improve on my interpersonal professional customer service skills, to keep my clients I provide computer tech support to, happy and satisfied with my services. In fact I have to report to two privately owned theocratic schools in Brooklyn next week to set up new computers in the administrative offices and also a new computer lab in the other location. I'm already acquainted with the rabbi there who owns both schools but from an unrelated gig from when I was in the printing industry a long time ago. I would imagine he would be very happy that I am doing well as a tech now. 


    Oh can i help you with hebrew? :lol:


    Just looking for ways to move to the USA.

  5. Gotcha. Exactly what a collegue of mine told me. I've heard people have to use the same technique with Russian. I know that's how it works with Chinese toowhen it comes to the writing aspect as it is not a phonetic language. Ditto on Japanese as even though it has an alphabet it makes a emphasis on vowels, also the fact it uses hanji characters similar to Chinese which are borrowed from that language. Trying to learn Japanese right now, it is a VERY difficult language. I think it's even harder then Chinese for a non-native speaker such as myself.



    I dont know about asian languages, but hebrew is very easy language, as usually enough 5-6 months learnings for to speak hebrew very well.


    Hello and welcome!  :D


    Thank you! :)


    And welcome Diesel, I love that subway map comparaisonl!!


    Thanks! Lol me too! :P

  6. Kein! (However, I can't really read it well without the vowels.)


    Be patient, it takes time. :)



    I heard about that. In Hebrew you have to MEMORIZE vowels. That must be a challenge to the non-native speaker. I guess using the wrong vowels can alter the meaning of the words right?


    Yes, but as ussualy the words are means what they are means and nothing other (if ure doubt what this word is it, u just looking to the all meaning of a sentence).

  7. Shalom! Mah schlomkah? (Sorry, I don't have Hebrew letters on my keyboard, even though I can understand it and speak it decently.)


     ?שלום! תודה, אני ב"ה, אתה מדבר עברית
