Please join me on Tuesday, May 14th at 6:30 for a happy hour to support the Riders Alliance, a new grass-roots membership organization of subway and bus riders, working to improve public transit in New York.
The Riders Alliance is a new organization that’s on the ground, organizing transit riders into a political constituency—to stop the destructive cycle of fare hikes, service cuts and longer, more uncomfortable commutes for us and millions of other people who ride the buses and trains.
I am a member of the organization and have been involved in our campaign to improve the G train working for better service, more free transfers and better communication with riders.  I believe deeply in what we are setting out to do — to empower ordinary subway riders throughout New York to take leadership in improving the subway system.
Please RSVP that you’ll join us on May 14th at Red Star for drinks, snacks and a spirited discussion with Senior Organizer Rebecca Bailin about the Riders Alliance and our campaign to improve the G train.
Of course, we’ll ask you for support at the event, but there’s no charge to attend, and we’ll serve plenty of food and drink!
For more information RSVP here. 
Happy Hour to support the Riders Alliance
Tuesday, May 14th
6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Red Star located on 37 Greenpoint Avenue (corner of West Street)
RSVP online today at www.ridersny.org/calendar!
 We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, May 14th!
So there you go!

BREAKING: Attempted Suicide On The G?

Those of you who have been wondering what all the activity is about at the Greenpoint and India Street entrances of the Crosstown Local— or are unaware that this is even coming to pass: I am very saddened to report that apparently someone jumped in front of an oncoming train. This is all I know presently. Those of you who are headed off for your evening commute and have to rely upon the G, the B43 or 62 buses should expect serious crowding and delays.

UPDATE, 6:30 p.m.: Here’s Gothamist’s take on what happened.

UPDATE, 7:05 p.m.: Here’s “Fox New’s” take.

The Word On The Street, Part IV: Make Noise

As captured today on 8th Avenue on Sunset Park. On my subway ride home from today’s sojourn I overheard an interesting conversation. It was between a mother and her 20-something daughter. The former said:

Aren’t you happy to get in trouble? What kind of world would this be if we did not have people to confront and challenge us?

The woman has a point. All you noise makers out there, this post is for you!
