  1. Lengthy story from The New York Times: https://www-nytimes-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.nytimes.com/2019/04/19/nyregion/cuomo-andy-byford-mta.amp.html?amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2F2019%2F04%2F19%2Fnyregion%2Fcuomo-andy-byford-mta.html
  2. An interesting story from The New York Times: https://www-nytimes-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.nytimes.com/2019/04/12/nyregion/mta-fare-hike.amp.html?amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2F2019%2F04%2F12%2Fnyregion%2Fmta-fare-hike.html
  3. 1 1939 Federal Writers Project Subway and Elevated Map; 1 1968 Subway Map.
  4. My subway map went out for delivery to me at 9:45 am. It is on the way.
  5. My 1968 subway map is here! 🙂 Well, not quite at my home yet but it did arrive at the Post Office at 6:09 am here in Tucson, Arizona. I see on eBay there are 1972 subway maps for sale. I think the price asked is a little too steep. I was five years old when the 1968 map came out and nine years old when the 1972 map came out.
  6. My 1968 Rapid Transit Guide subway map was mailed to me on Thursday April 4th from The Bronx. It is on time and will arrive on Tuesday April 9th. My subway map is guaranteed to be new. I could have purchased a 1968 Rapid Transit Guide for $50.00 but it was pre-owned and the seller was asking for $9.50 for shipping. I figured why not spend $5.50 more and get a new one? The map features the 70(8) Third Avenue El. A nice subway map from the first days of the .
  7. I just successfully purchased a new condition vintage 1968 Rapid Transit Guide on eBay for $65.00 and free first class shipping. This New York City subway map is from when I was five years old. This subway map features a lot of service changes from today. My subway map should arrive by Tuesday April 9th. My order has been confirmed by seller Hank2770 (366).

  12. 119 years ago, today was "Tunnel" Day in the city of New York. Mayor Van Wyck.

  13. From Street And Smith's Baseball: WHERE TO NEXT? The next round of MLB expansion may offer some of the old and some of the new. By G. Scott Thomas Buffalo Business First American League National League East. East Baltimore. Montreal* Boston. Mets Yankees. Philadelphia Tampa Bay. Washington Central. Central White Sox. Atlanta Cleveland. Cincinnati Detroit. Miami Toronto. Pittsburgh Midwest. Midwest Houston. Cubs Kansas City. Colorado Minnesota. Milwaukee Texas. St. Louis West. West Angels. Arizona Oakland. Dodgers Portland*. San Diego Seattle. San Francisco Expansion is coming. Almost everyone in baseball agrees on that. But when? And where? Nobody can answer those questions with precision. Commissioner Rob Manfred publicly raised the possibility twice during the past season. He said in May 2018 that "he would like to get to 32" teams from the current 30. He added in a July interview that expansion would be "great for our sport". Yet he outlined no process or time table. The most he had to offer was enthusiasm. "I hope I'm around long enough to see us expand" said the commissioner. Expert observers believe that Manfred's vague wishes will come true in the next five to ten years. "There are enough cities and enough good investments out there. If done deliberately, expansion by two teams would make eminent sense", says Andrew Zimbalist, a Smith College economist who has written several books on the business of sports. His view is shared by most journalists who cover the big leagues, as indicated by a new survey of 108 writers and editors by Street And Smith's Baseball Yearbook. Sixty-five percent predict that two new teams will join Major League Baseball no later than 2024. An additional twenty-two percent envision expansion between 2025 and 2029. Only thirteen percent insist that the same 30 teams will be taking the field a decade from now. If those results prove accurate, Manfred and the current big league owners will soon need to get serious about expansion. They can expect to be bombarded with applications. As many as twenty possibilities are floating about. Candidates include one that has already lost a major league franchise (Montreal), two that would share matters with existing teams (the suburbs of New York and Los Angeles), a pair from south of the border (Mexico City and Monterey), two more from the Caribbean (San Juan and Havana) and a host of up-and-coming North American cities with big dreams for the future, from Portland and Las Vegas to Charlotte and Nashville. The choice will not be easy.

  15. A beautiful book that is very interesting. "Tunnels" gives a brief description of tunneling through the centuries then describes the various types of tunnels in use as recently as 1959. The hardcover book is profusely illustrated with black and white photographs and a few drawings. The dust jacket has a black and white photograph of the Honeymoon Tunnels which are railroad tunnels. "Tunnels" is 144 pages long. It is the book I have just started reading. I am in Chapter 1. One very fascinating item is that Europe and Asia have some smaller tunnels that are for pedestrian and bicyclist use and pedestrians walk through and bicylists ride through. Such as the Maas Tunnels in Rotterdam, The Netherlands! Did you know that pedestrians and bicylists access their smaller Maas Tunnel via escalators?
  16. The cover of the book has a yellow design - the headlights from an incoming train arriving. Inside of the book is a map of the IRT Lexington Avenue line.
  17. I have purchased a new remainder softcover copy of The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three that is not a movie tie-in for $1.50. Originally the book cost $15.00. I also own an e-book of The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three on Google Play Books. I also own the original 1974 movie on Google Play Movies And Television. I feel the book and the original movie are the best. My favorite character is from the movie - Lt. Zachary Garber (Walter Mattahu). In the book he is Detective Bert Haskins.
  18. Oh, my God! I feel for the person who saw the man get crushed by a train first hand!
  19. Early last Tuesday morning, my friend Miss Celeste Colette unexpectedly lost Her uncle as he passed away. 😢 ✝️ Miss Celeste was in mourning for a couple of days but She is pretty much back to Herself again. 🙂 I am not sure how old Her uncle was. 😮
