On Let's Call It 'Apple Privilege'

But then isn't Apple's acquisition of Beats a form of Cultural Appropriation?

Liking this song does not make you gay.

Liking Mazda Miatas is what makes you gay.

On Train Terrible

@jfruh The thinking is that a dedicated line will encourage further development as it shows a commitment to the waterfront. In particular, attracting office developments as opposed to strictly residential. The MTA has a waterfront dedicated bus, the B32, that now that runs up Kent to LIC. It is a total dud and runs every 30 minutes. I think a streetcar works if it has a dedicated lane separated from traffic as in SF and many other cities. I highly doubt the MTA is open to change and introducing a new means of transit is unlikely in an inept, staid bureaucratic agency like the MTA. I am sure if they can find a way, they will spend millions "studying" the proposal through 2025.

This is a line that should be developed now as the development has already reach a critical mass. The Domino development will bring in many more residents and office space that would greatly benefit from a dedicated line. Bloomberg could have pulled this off, DeBlasio not so much.

@brianvan The G train only nominally serves the waterfront in Greenpoint, for most of the line it does not overlap with this proposal.

On All That We Have Foreseen Has Come To Pass In Brooklyn

We're making fun of ethnic names now? Welp, indeed.

You know, little Sammy should be reminded that once upon a time Ochs-Sulzberger was considered a strange name in Brooklyn.
