New York Transit Strike Special Line

To manage the first transit strike in 25 years, they opened up a special line in New York City today, reserved for extraordinary situations like this:


I think the craziest part of the strike was not the extra 70 blocks I had to walk, but the complete lack of cars on Madison Ave. today. It was the most concrete evidence I’ve seen that the noise in NYC is largely attributable to cars and trucks. It was eerily but pleasantly quiet as I walked up Madison and watched rollerbladers and bicyclists ride down the center of Madison.
