The 3-mile greenway, which dates to 1908 and connects Cunningham Park and Alley Pond Park, has not been resurfaced in years, making it bumpy for bicyclists and a tripping hazard for pedestrians and joggers, locals said.
  • NYC’s Hidden Marine Wonderland Revealed in New Map [Live Science]: New York City, it’s time to get to know your neighbors. No, not New Jerseyans. Look the other way — toward the ocean.

  • Vintage subway cars to run at Transit Museum this weekend [amNewYork]: In their half-century on New York’s tracks, the low-voltage subway cars saw two world wars, two World’s Fairs and 20 world championships from the Yankees. The dark green-painted steel cars known as Lo-Vs were named after their low-voltage propulsion control, a system that brought huge safety gains for the crews of what was then the Interborough Rapid Transit Co.
