Maybe the city should start raising sidewalks or lowering streets or building more storm tanks, pumps

I wonder if Uber and Lyft arepaying the fully load costs of their service in terms of compensation, regulatory fees or if the costs are being subsidized by investors. If their service is so great, then passengers should be paying the fully loaded costs.

If matsikoudis wants more affordable housing, the city should build more affordable housing, instead if advocating confiscatory policies. He should have a look at Venezuela, the old Soviet Union....why not have price controls on food or car sales?

Home Improvement - downsizing radiators
#16
Home away from home
Home away from home


yesterday i happened to be in an apartment in manhattan that was undergoing extensive renovation. i noticed that the large victorian cast iron radiators had been replaced with much smaller cast iron (and less intrusive imo) radiators, given that many houses now have double pane windows and insulation, is it practical to reduce radiator size by 50%, 25%? just wondering...any info, constructive feedback welcome

That doesn't make any sense. Suez is responsible for replacing their meter. Now if the main can't be shut off before the meter, then that would be your responsibility. Check your house, there is usually a valve on the inside of your house but before the meter.

As long as that valve can be shut off for them to replace, it shouldn't be a problem. If you're saying that both your inside valve and the street valve need to be replaced, then you have a pretty large job ahead of you.
i believe the homeowner would be responsible for the house valve, suez would have to pay for the street valve. t=you should talk to a plumber...maybe the plumber can break the concrete so that he/she could freeze the line

Very likely, that is how this car was spotted. Some of the JCPD units have the automatic plate reading cameras installed on the trunk lid. Surely you have seen these before. They look like boxes that point forward diagonally.

Here is what they look like mounted on an NYPD patrol car:

How about instead of Ford Vans they use amphibious buses and skip the tunnel?
