Funding the next five-year capital plan for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is a priority for the New York City region, and fortunately the funding gap has narrowed. The real question is: how much funding should come from motorists versus taxpayers and commuters?
Manhattan Mini Storage's bold advertisements are expected, but one of their recent "Storage Space Love Stories" is worthy of more conversation than it's provoked. The image is all over New York City's MTA-- a transgender woman, or male drag queen, poses by a vanity with furs and wigs surrounding.
We've all been there: You see someone cute on the subway but don't know what to do or if you should chat them up. Simone Davis recalls finding herself in that exact scenario one morning on the way to work.
I am a strong supporter of the right to free speech guaranteed in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, a principle which is at the very heart...

The extraordinary public transit system operated by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is the lifeblood of New York's 24-hour-a-day economy.
Why are you messing with NYC's specialized high schools -- a part of our educational system that actually works pretty well, instead of focusing on things that don't?
As the fight against ISIS/ISIL continues, and so do our campaigns to fight terrorism around the world, we are bound to be reminded that we are not in a war against Islam. But why is it that when I turn on the news, listen to people discuss Islam or look at images of Muslims in popular culture, it damn sure feels like we are.
I have a picture in my office of Broadway and 116th Street when the Columbia campus in Morningside Heights, New York City was relatively new. In the c...
