NY Gets New Bridge

Monday, August 09, 2010

Photo: Daniel Tucker

(Andrea Bernstein, Transportation Nation) The fanfare has been incessant -- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg did no less than FOUR live interviews this morning about it. Perhaps because it's been a season of relentless bad news for local budgets, which means major infrastructure completions are totally rare these days. Perhaps it's because this project has been so vivid -- a bridge floated down the Hudson River from Albany to Bayonne, NJ, tweaked, then sent up the East River by barge to its Bronx home. But we're suckers for it anyway, we can't help ourselves, it's catnip for journalists, irresistible especially these slow August news days. So here it is, the new Willis Avenue Bridge, getting ready to be moved into place in the Bronx.

Yankees? Baseball? What?

Friday, May 29, 2009

I’d sometimes sit at home on my bed during a humid muggy Sunday afternoon flipping through channels. I’d land on a baseball game. Little figures would run across the screen throwing a ball around, running from one base to another, a ball went high in the air, the crowed screamed, what did this mean? What’s the significance of this? I’d grow tired of watching and turn off the TV.

The Real Hip Hop

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

When Kaari, Sanda and I walk into the Next Generation Center, the home of our current Bronx workshop, it's like walking into a house party. Hip hop and rap deejayed by kids from the center thumps just a little too loud. I keep thinking some adult is going to put the kabosh on this, but they don't seem phased.
