    Another MTA hike possible despite record ridership

    Despite record-breaking subway ridership numbers, the Metropolitan Transportation Agency may need to raise tolls and fares, again,  in order to close a budget gap. In his annual report of the MTA's financial outlook, New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said the agency has a $15.2B budget gap that can be plugged by raising fares and tolls 15 percent. A four percent increase is already planned for March.

    New York City is known for many things. One of them is its amazing nightlife. These days going out to a nightclub usually means velvet ropes, loud music and bottle service. But that wasn't always the case. In fact nightlife as we know it was actually invented in New York in the 1920s. Before that era, people went to vaudeville shows or organized balls and dances.

    We are used to technology helping us make our lives easier and work more efficient. But when it comes to the FDNY and EMS' 911 system, the city's top investigator said the technology is actually causing human error. An ambulance took 21 minutes to get to a house fire in Far Rockaway, Queens, last April, according to a new report.
