I think it's time for the city (and other levels of government) to stop trying to find new things to tax and to find ways to cut the cost of providing essential services. Stop being involved in things that are not part of being a government, such as entertainment venues.

VanBramer's rally was not to condone hate speech, but the exact opposite. I'm sure this was a typo, but please fix it!

A major concern for everyone, especially for people that are waiting for an MTA bus at the MTA bus stop.

And that is why subway crime was down because of the constant and positive communication between the MTA and the NYPD.

I agree 100% with the Captain.

Sick bastards!!! Go back to the shitty home you were raised in, you racist a$$holes!

Did you watch the video? He man literally said "Now that Trump is president, he'll revoke your visa"

What about the dog run?

Where's the connection to Trump? Even the freebee tabloids have gone berserk!

Not a Racist.... .but I speak the truth !!

What a unfortunate situation. Trump brings out the worst in Americans he ran a campaign on hatred, racism and division. White Americans obviously unaware of history have poor insight just as this man in the white SUV. What's sad as well is most white nypd officers would most likely let this man go. People if you want to learn about the world read books, study travel etc.try not to use the television as your education for all things. Ignorance is ugly. I hope the white mans family sees this video as well as his neighbors and co workers. To much disrespect in this world. The most respectful beautiful people I have ever meet are from countries afar. Most of the times Americans feel like they are the ultimate privealgef class of citizens. Try not to meet hatred with more hatred. Pray for these fools.

I understand your concern Rusty Lawson, in which that the entire BMT Astoria Line, in which the N & W trains are served, could be overcrowded along the line, 24/7/365. However, the MTA cannot add more trains because: 1) The 60th Street Tunnel that serves the N,R & W train services are at capacity under the East River; and 2) The signal system is very old, especially since they were implemented in the 1910s when the BMT was controlling these trains.

It seems the people in control do not use Public Transportation. This dose not make since. We need more trains on the N and W lines. There is more and more Housing development going on. The train so few have been not running. On time. W train needs to run more often.

Why I deserve a trip to Cancun: Although I love Astoria very much, it\'s always nice to get away for a bit! And when I leave, I always appreciate coming back even more :o)

Why I deserve a Cancun trip: Recently I lost my editorial job after seven years with a company. It has been a very stressful time. My boyfriend is also in the academy for the FDNY and we can\'t really afford a much-needed trip on our own.
