Sachin Chopra sits in a makeshift dining tent in the parking lot of his once Michelin-starred restaurant, All Spice. It’s Friday. It’s drizzling. And he’s about to burst into tears. Chopra and his co-owner/wife Shoshana Wolff just signed a new two-year lease on the charming, 116-year-old Victorian that houses All Spice. And both of them know this is likely the last lease they’ll ever sign for this building. A real estate developer bought the San Mateo land that All Spice sits on (along with five parcels next to it) for $7.1 million in 2018, and in 2019 announced plans to demolish every existing structure in favor of a slew of market-rate condos, townhomes and 82 underground parking spaces. Since then, All Spice’s owners have been strung along on very short leases as the pandemic has helped keep the project at bay, but Chopra and Wolff both know there’s a day in the not-too-distant future when they’ll watch a bulldozer tear through what has been a figurative home to the couple … [Read more...] about Why All Spice, a Bay Area restaurant that once held a Michelin star, is set to be bulldozed
The X17 was an express bus linking Staten Island to Midtown Manhattan. It made 85 stops, 66 of them before even leaving Staten Island. Total distance? Nearly 40 miles. Total drive time? The schedule said 2 hours 33 minutes, but closer to three hours was often more like it. “When people’s eyebrows go up, we tell them you could fly to Florida in less time,” said Tony Ventimiglia, a bus dispatcher. “And you certainly can.” The X17’s leisurely path across Staten Island underscored the inefficient and outdated bus network that crisscrosses New York City, the largest municipal bus system in the nation. Mounting frustrations over crawling service, endless delays and routes that simply do not get commuters where they need to go have led to a bus crisis , sending riders fleeing to the equally failing subway and onto crowded roads — worsening the city’s gridlock. Bus ridership declined to 725 million rides in 2017, down from 843 million in 2006. Now, transit officials are … [Read more...] about This Commuter Bus Took Nearly 3 Hours to Get to Manhattan. It Was the Express.
Ukrainian servicemen walk past a minefield warning sign on the front line with Russia-backed separatists near Luganske in Ukraine’s Donetsk region. Photo: Anatolii Stepanov/AFP via Getty Images Over the past few months, Russia has amassed tens of thousands of soldiers, along with tanks, artillery, and other materiel near its border with Ukraine in what U.S. intelligence (and much of the world) has interpreted as a buildup in preparation for an invasion. At the same time, online propaganda and disinformation activity has increased , as have cyberattacks on Ukrainian targets, including one that took down several government websites on Friday. It is no coincidence that these ominous activities look strikingly similar to the lead-up to Russia’s 2014 invasion of its weaker neighbor, in which it annexed Crimea and launched the still-ongoing insurgency by Moscow-backed separatists in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine. Indeed, if Russia does send troops into Ukraine in the … [Read more...] about Is Another Russian Invasion of Ukraine Inevitable?
It was 8:30 a.m. on a Tuesday during the height of the morning rush on the nation’s busiest subway. Suddenly, power went out at one station in Brooklyn, but that lone failure triggered a meltdown that crippled service across New York City, stranding countless commuters whose plans for the day were derailed. One woman never made it to housing court and now faces eviction. Another missed a doctor appointment made months earlier. A graphic designer lost $100 in wages. A computer technician paid more than $50 for an Uber car to make a meeting. A lawyer was late for a sentencing. A pastry chef who needs every hour of work he can scrounge lost an hour and a half of pay. A psychoanalyst never made it to her session with a patient. Neither did her patient. These are the very real human costs, financial and otherwise, of a single subway disruption — just one painful delay in what has become a season of transit misery . On this day, like so many others, New Yorkers missed job interviews, … [Read more...] about ‘Money Out of Your Pocket’: New Yorkers Tell of Subway Delay Woes
