Ferrari turns 70 this year, which is a pretty major milestone. Seventy years of racing and producing some of the most beautiful road cars ever to grace the earth. What is a better way to celebrate this than to throw a big celebration in the City That Hates Cars, then?
Federal investigators have determined that engineers of two commuter trains that crashed in the New York City-area were suffering from undiagnosed sleep apnea at the time of the incidents, according to reports released Thursday. The engineers have no memory of the crashes, the reports showed.
Can you believe it? Porsche has built one million 911s over a span of 54 years. That is a lot of freaking cars. And, to celebrate, it made the one-millionth 911 a special one. Here are some gorgeous photos of it cruising around Manhattan. The City that Hates Cars looks good on it.
As if our world wasn’t as messed up as we already know it to be, NYC’s Transport Workers Union is claiming that the MTA stores dead bodies cleaned up off of subway tracks in worker break rooms. You thought you had it bad when somebody heated up their fish?
New York City’s mayor, Bill de Blasio, is expected to announce on Monday a tax on the wealthiest residents in the city to pay for much-needed improvements for the city’s deteriorating subway system, according to multiple reports. And unless you’re a millionaire who thrives on the misery of the poor or whose life would…
I always think of NYC as the anti-car city. The traffic is terrible. The roads are terrible. Street parking is a scam and parking garages are too. But some incredible cars hide out here.
Over the past week, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced some solutions to NYC’s subway catastrophe, fixes that include removing seats from trains, making an app and getting Tough On Litter. Now Governor Andrew Cuomo discovered yet another remedy: getting businesses to adopt subway stations.
As the New York City subway system hurdles toward complete destruction, state leaders are cooking up some creative solutions. You see, allocating emergency relief toward the trains would be too easy.
As the cars shot off from the grid, we wondered when they’d reach our seats. We kept looking, waiting. They went by so quietly we almost missed it, prompting myself and the Jalopnik staff to crack up laughing. When I realized the lack of noise likely made us sound obnoxious, I looked around. Everyone else was…
I realize now that the Volkswagen I bought under an oak tree in Sacramento has been here to New York City for a few months now and I haven’t written anything about it. Let me tell you, it is an incomparable joy.
Formula E may be known for racing on street circuits, but that’s mostly because they want to host races in the middle of cities. They really prefer close-in locations that allow them to race without shutting down city streets. One such spot that was briefly considered for New York City’s first-ever ePrix was none…
The electric cars of the FIA Formula E Championship are coming to New York City (the only Real City, they keep telling me) for the first time, and, if you’re one of the 8.5 million people here, you may be going. Here’s everything you need to know about the race and details you might have missed, like the fact that you…
“I’ve never seen you happier,” my wife told me one day last week. She shook her head and rolled her eyes. As I started to do a little dance around our living room, she looked at me with bewilderment. The reason for my burst of happiness? I had parked our car and wouldn’t have to move it for more than a week.
Two cars of a packed southbound A train jumped from the track and collided with a wall between 135th Street and 125th Street Tuesday morning. No deaths were reported, but over two dozen people sustained minor injuries.
Some of the most obnoxious bleating I hear from my New York staffers is in regards to the state of the public transportation system. “It’s so laaaaate,” some bawl. “It’s so haaaaawt,” others lament. Why don’t you just drive, then! I swear to God, sometimes the easiest answers are right in front of us.
The summer is hot and the trains are stopped. As you sit on a stalled subway train somewhere deep underground, enjoy our newest installment of people from inside the MTA telling you exactly what is wrong with the MTA.
Here in New York City, the transportation situation is so dire that the MTA is encouraging people to “stay home or work odd hours” to ease the rush hour burden. Which is a good peg for the third installment of our series in which real MTA workers tell us what the hell is going on down there.
Anyone familiar with the New York City subway system knows that it is woefully ill-equipped to handle the throngs of regular rush-hour use. As the system itself is not about to improve enough to match demand, the MTA is now seeking to address the other side of the equation. That is, it’s telling New Yorkers to, uh,…
New York City subways suck, and we’re asking MTA employees to tell us why. Today, actual train operators speak out on flawed equipment, overcrowding, and how they’re DOING THEIR BEST. Okay?
