NEW YORK (Reuters) - Cities that were shunned in Amazon.com Inc’s search for a secondary corporate headquarters are revisiting their bids in case one of the actual winners, New York City, rejects the corporate giant due to opposition from local politicians. FILE PHOTO: Demonstrators gather to protest Amazon's new location workplace in Long Island City of the Queens borough of New York, U.S., November 14, 2018. REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton/File Photo Chicago, Miami and Newark are among the passed-over finalists that have expressed interest in another chance to become the home of an Amazon project that could bring 25,000 jobs. Nashville, Tennessee, which was awarded a 5,000-person center, also said it was open to taking on a bigger role should New York withdraw from consideration. Newark, New Jersey, some 15 miles (24 km) to the west of New York City, is willing to share the headquarters in the event its larger neighbor would be satisfied with a scaled-down project, said … [Read more...] about Cities shunned by Amazon revive hopes for HQ given New York opposition
Solid concrete and GPS don’t get along all that well, as New York City’s tunnel and bridge crowd can attest. Commuters, couriers, bus attendants, cabbies, and sightseers driving between the Garden State and the Big Apple — or crossing from Manhattan into the city’s outer boroughs (or vice versa) — know all too well what a trip beneath East River or the Hudson entails: a navigational blackout. It’s an inconvenience on the best of days, and an absolute nightmare when traffic’s backed up to kingdom come. For context: New York’s Lincoln Tunnel ranked eighth in the 2015 American Highway Users Alliance’s study of the country’s worst highway bottlenecks, which found that the total annual delay caused exceeded 3.4 million hours and cost $87 million. The problem’s one that the engineers at Waze, the Israel and Palo Alto company Google acquired for nearly a billion dollars in 2013 to bolster its mapping and navigation … [Read more...] about Waze Beacons arrive in New York City tunnels
L-pocalypse not. On Thursday, almost exactly four months before the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s popular L train line was set to shut down for 15 months of repairs, Governor Andrew Cuomo made a shock announcement: It wouldn’t. After less than a month of consultation, a panel of academic engineering experts convened by the governor determined the subway, damaged by 2012’s Hurricane Sandy, could get by with a limited, nights-and-weekends shutdown instead. Rejoice, right? For the 400,000 daily L train riders, definitely. But for those who have spent two years planning for what even government officials call the “L-pocalypse,” Cuomo’s apparent last-minute save had tinges of bittersweetness. (The new plan, which involves an “innovative” engineering process that has been used to build new tunnels outside the US, needs approval from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board, over which Cuomo has some influence.) … [Read more...] about New York Has Averted a Subway Line Shutdown.
