    • One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “It is apparent that there has been a lack of legislation to solve these issues”. Could you explain or give an example for the “lack of legislation” mentioned. I understand the purpose of petition, however simply demanding for Andrew. M. Cuomo to fix MTA will not change anything. As an example of the thereafter mentioned “lack of legislation”, I believe that closing down subway systems during the late night to very early morning will fix these issues. Only 1.5 percent of weekday riders, or about 85,000 people, use the subway between 12:30 a.m. and 5 a.m., according to 2016 data (source: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/30/nyregion/subway-end-weeknight-service.html). Even with these low numbers, nighttime trains could be replaced with busses. There needs to be a shutdown to make drastic changes to the subway system. Work is extremely hard to finish from morning to evening, as construction work must be planned around still allowing those who usually go to that station a viable necessary option of transport. New York is one of the only systems in the world that has a 24/7 subway system, and the damage shows.

      • Subway travel is an imperative part of being able to get to parks. Fixing subway travel issues theoretically will lead more people to use the subway to get to parks, increasing the amount of people going to parks. I invite you to view your blog on similar park related issues https://parks.home.blog/
