Emily Ladau was panicking. It was rush hour, and she was on her way to an event at the Strand Bookstore in New York City. She had just arrived at the Union Square subway station, which is a feat in itself. Ladau uses a wheelchair because she has Larsen syndrome, a congenital skeletal disorder, and since she lives in West Babylon on Long Island, she relies on functioning elevators on several train platforms before she can even get on the subway almost 40 miles away. First there's the Long Island Railroad that brings her into Manhattan, then there's the transfer at Penn Station to get on the subway. Merely arriving at Union Square is a kind of transit triumph. But as she wheeled to the elevator on the subway platform, she noticed a sign showing the elevator was broken. The online system that keeps track of out-of-service elevators didn't indicate there was a problem; she had checked twice during the course of her commute. But now that she was on the platform, the only elevator wasn't … [Read more...] about The New York City subway’s accessibility problem

New York City is a place where attitude and strong opinions are in the DNA. New Yorkers might not agree on much, but there is one thing on which millions of them do agree: the subway is a mess. Trains are packed, breakdowns and delays are routine, some say it's gone off the rails. After an actual derailment last year injured more than 40 people, the governor declared a state of emergency. When it first opened more than a century ago, the New York City subway was considered a feat of American engineering, now it's another example of the country's ailing infrastructure. Luckily, there's a man with a plan, an Englishman in New York who proposes the city's largest infrastructure expenditure since the 1950s. More on that in a moment. First, if you have never ridden the sprawling New York City subway, welcome aboard. When the trains are moving, there's no better way to get around New York City, than on the subway. These 400-ton behemoths crisscross the underbelly of the city, zipping … [Read more...] about Why has the New York City subway gone off the rails?

Sections SEARCH Skip to content Skip to site index Dance Subscribe Log In Subscribe Log In Advertisement Supported by Critic’s Notebook ByAlastair Macaulay May 31, 2018 New York City Ballet is impressive in a state of limbo. Peter Martins resigned as ballet master in chief at the beginning of the year; since early December, the company’s day-to-day artistic life has been run by a team of four, all under 40. Yet City Ballet — still the world’s most valuable company for the excellence of its classical-modernist repertory — is in remarkably good shape. Had Mr. Martins resigned a decade or two earlier, the same could not have been said. Just what happened to make the difference in the years 2008-18? There are multiple answers. Dancers have learned again to step off balance into space and to embody their music rather than merely to follow it; and a number of excellent new ballets have revitalized the … [Read more...] about New York City Ballet Is in Limbo, but in Bloom
