Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) officials today launched the new digital “Live Subway Map,” a first of its kind guide to navigating the subway system in real time. The new map, which allows riders to plan trips more easily by taking into account service changes and seeing train movements as they happen, is the byproduct of an 18 month-long public-private partnership between the MTA, the Transit Innovation Partnership and Brooklyn-based global design and technology firm Work & Co. Currently in its beta phase, the map which can be accessed at map.mta.info, will ultimately replace The Weekender and will serve as the primary interactive means for moving around the subway system.

The ambitious project marks the subway map’s first major redesign in four decades, replacing the iconic design by Unimark International and Michael Hertz Associates seen widely on printed maps today.  The Live Subway Map beta merges the best features of the existing printed map with the distinctive “Vignelli” approach of The Weekender by overlaying clear and detailed track routes atop a geographically-correct street grid that becomes more detailed as the user zooms in.

Work & Co designed and developed the web-based digital tool on a completely pro bono basis with the goal of making the lives of New Yorkers easier. Highly customer friendly, the map allows customers to navigate…

Editorial

You should know that the Honorable Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was a jurist in the highest court of the United States passed away on Friday, September 18, 2020, after 07:00 p.m., at the age of 87. Justice Ginsburg was appointed by President Bill Clinton 27 years ago. Her death comes at a politically difficult time in our country, especially during a presidential election year.

It is important that you know that according to the United States Constitution, it is the sole responsibility of the President of the United States to appoint judges to the Supreme Court. This my dear readers, is the Constitution!

  • Under Article II of the Constitution, the president “shall appoint … judges to the Supreme Court,” and the Senate’s role is to provide “advice and consent” Known as the “appointments clause” of the Constitution, it lays out three sequential acts in order to fill a vacancy.First, the nomination by the president; second, the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate; and third, the appointment by the president. There is no exception for the president to refuse to nominate a successor nor is there an exception for senators to refuse to provide advice and consent.
  • Only the president has the constitutional authority to nominate a justice and the Senate does not have any authority until after the president makes a nomination. Although it may be good practice, the president is under no obligation to obtain advice from the Senate before a nomination since the Senate’s duty to provide advice and consent begins only afterthe nomination.

It is also important for you to know that the Constitution also stipulates that the Supreme Court must be composed of 9 (nine) judges. When they are confirmed their appointments are for life. They cannot be easily removed from their appointments. A Supreme Court vacancy becomes available only as a result of death, resignation, retirement, or impeachment. However, impeachment is rare, and difficult to obtain.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) today announced Turnstyle – the collection of small businesses in the Columbus Circle subway station – will reopen to the public, beginning Wednesday, October 14, 2020. Buoyed by colorful murals created by members of the Black Artists Collective, including selections by celebrity street artist Gazoo, the block-long retail complex will again feature shopping and a global array of New York food vendors for grab-and-go take-out. All stores at Turnstyle have been retrofitted to ensure proper social distancing. In addition, masks are required while traveling through the corridor, as well as while riding on public transit, and hand sanitizer dispensers are available throughout the space.

To ensure these businesses are set up for continued success, the MTA will be proposing to the MTA Board this month a package that would provide financial relief to tenants, including those at Turnstyle, until ridership returns. Lease modifications under consideration include a plan to change fixed rent to a structure based on a percentage of business’ revenues and abating a portion of rent payments that had been previously deferred. National chains and banks would be excluded from these modifications. The MTA is committed to working with tenants to provide a successful path forward, while also protecting taxpayers by maximizing revenue to support its transportation mission.

“The reopening of Turnstyle is an important moment for our customers and for New York City as the economy rebuilds,” said Janno Lieber, President of MTA Construction & Development. “As we welcome restaurant and retail owners, along with our customers, safety remains a priority — from wearing masks to social distancing. Rebooting our economy will help the MTA and the region recover and we’re delighted to see Turnstyle reopening.”

“Turnstyle is where small business entrepreneurs are able to celebrate their creativity and vision,” said Susan Fine, Turnstyle’s developer. “This is where you will find extraordinary culinary variety, from Russian and Chinese dumplings, to sushi, empanadas, hummus, paella, pizza, bubble tea, and so much…

On Saturday, October 10, 2020, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr.; in conjunction with The Bronx Tourism Council, The Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation, and Transportation Alternatives; hosted a bike ride with borough residents to launch the Tour de Bronx 2020 Ride with GPS routes.

Originally slated to take place on October 25, 2020, the Tour de Bronx – the largest free bicycle event in the State of New York – was cancelled due to the gathering restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In its place, the Bronx Borough President’s office and The Bronx Tourism Council partnered with Ride with GPS app to create routes where cyclists can choose from three paths and ride at their own pace, in their own time, and with their own team.
Tour de Bronx 2020 is sponsored by Montefiore Medical Center, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Target, Zipcar, Citi Bike, BronxCare Health System, SBH Health System, Transportation Alternatives and Patricia Lynch Associates, and will run on the Ride with GPS app from October 10 to November 08, 2020.

Established in 1994 by the office of the Bronx Borough President and The Bronx Tourism Council, the Tour de Bronx is a unique way to tour The Bronx’s burgeoning neighborhoods and scenic waterfronts that the borough has to offer while emphasizing alternate modes of transportation. The Tour de Bronx is also a part of the Borough President’s #Not62 initiative that promotes healthier habits for Bronx residents.
