A quick week, I have not had a chance to collect many reads.
New York’s MTA has dropped plans for an improved M60 route through Manhattan to LaGuardia due to opposition from ‘community leaders’ and merchants on affected streets. Pathetic and predictable. There has always been a glaring need for express and local versions of the M60. An express for travelers and airport workers stopping only at the key subway transfer points and then a local for residents along the route.
Meanwhile, the MTA is going to make some improvements to what a friend calls the ‘Mythical G,’ the forgotten subway line that is constant irritant to those who depend on it.
I have researched a Maldives trip preciously and never seen the appeal and value for me. If I want to go to a beach, which is rare for me, I do not want to fly around the world and take multi-hundred dollar airport transfers. And Male gets thumbs down from just about every traveler. Just Another Points Traveler shares her perspective that would probably chime with my own should I ever make the trip. The comments are interesting, some people get quite defensive. I can relate, when I put so much into a trip I don’t want to admit when it is disappointing. Others clearly genuinely love their Maldives experience.
What makes a perk work (FT).
