STAY AWAY FROM THE SUBWAY
A green website telling you to avoid public transportation? This will probably be the only time we say this, but don't go in the subway this weekend - just don't. Well all know that the MTA's systems leave much to be desired (a euphemism indeed) and their water drainage system is a frighteningly medieval collection of 700 super-old pumps, some of which were purchased second hand from the builders of the Panama Canal. If you think we're being dramatic, the MTA has even announced that it is planning to shut down the whole transportation system, including subways, trains, and buses, so we think it's best if you plan to get around some other way or better yet, find shelter and stay in.
