The outside of the Roosevelt Island Tram is (quite) wet, but I know for sure it hasn't rained outside in the last couple hours. Did it take a dip in the East River, or... does Andrew Cuomo have his top men hosing this thing off with rubbing alcohol?

Hey : on the Queensbridge Park Greenway, as it approaches Vernon Blvd from the east (across from the Queensbridge Park entrance), there's no stop sign, or indication that you're about to cross car traffic that doesn't stop. Please fix!

These videos are fun to watch, but they're bad for me - every time I watch one I ride like a god damn maniac next time I'm out.

Gray "serial millennial myth debunker" Kimbrough 19h
8 of the 10 largest US cities in 1950 lost population and never reached that level again. Detroit and St. Louis now have about 1/3 the population that they did in 1950. As a country, we invested a ton of resources into dismantling these cities.

That is _incredible_. At my most pessimistic I wouldn't have guessed they were down 2/3.

Is that 1/3 the population in the same boundaries?

Occasional reminder that the United States of America is not only not β€œfull” it’s fucking empty. E. M. P. T. Y. Most of our cities are ghost towns and we are busily trying to legislate even more people out of them.

In my experience, monitor size is a one-way rachet, because you always like the bigger monitor(s) more than you expect.

I consume Substack newsletters the same way I consume blogs: I add them to my Feedly, categorized appropriately, and then I do not ever look at Feedly

Bill de Blasio doesn't have to move the men of The Lucerne. Join us for an art protest Sunday @ 2pm to demand he move the 5,500 people in congregate shelters to safety instead. We will draw 5,500 stick figures at The Lucerne for those sleeping 15 to a room as COVID 2nd wave hits.

The Books aren't obscure by Internet standards, but this is one of my favorite songs ever made.

And you can remove all the symptomatic sick people, and a lot of people who know of a recent exposure, or got a positive test, so it's not _quite_ that bad. Although working against all these selection effects is a paranoia/responsibility selection effect, so who knows?

I have a VanMoof S3, its battery is non-removable, so that's out. (I also don't love the automatic transmission, and it took a month to get fixed, but on the other hand it's pretty, so...)

In his defense, he can't just come right out and say "I think at least one new apartment will be built in New York City during my mayoralty", voters HATE that.

Seems like this is more like bullet point 3 of the executive summary of Plan A.
