New York is a city that lives or dies by its public transportation; the subway’s numerous meltdowns this spring and summer have made that truth painfully obvious. But the subway isn’t the only way of getting around, with new contenders like Citi Bike and NYC Ferry offering New Yorkers plenty of ways—if not always the most practical ones—of getting around the city.
And let’s face it: people love to talk about transit, whether it’s bitching about your horrible morning commute; boasting about how your ride to work is like, so short (guilty); or comparing notes on the best routes to get from point A to point B.
So with all that in mind, we’re going to be talkin’ transit this week. As part of Curbed’s first-ever Transportation Week, the next five days are all about the way we get around New York City, and the larger issues surrounding them. There’ll be a little bit of everything: service-y guides to transit hubs; deep dives into topics like subway accessibility and the projects set to transform New York’s transit infrastructure; a look at real estate along various transit lines; and so much more!
Are you excited yet? We are. So let’s do this—and as always, if you’ve got something to say, the tipline is open.
