Air travel is the single most environmentally damaging activity most of us engage in. Finding a suitable alternative is vital to sustainability, but is also quite antithetical to the way business is done in our world.*
Ray Charles & The Raylettes
“Change is inevitable — it is how the city lives and breathes. And I don’t begrudge a safer neighborhood — no one wants to dodge bullets or have to fight off a mugger with a two-by-four or a kitchen knife or a gun (as I did). But I feel sad and angry that the only newcomers to Manhattan from now on will be those rich enough to buy their way in. No new immigrants will bring their ways and flavors and styles to our neighborhoods. No poor artists or writers or musicians will come here and fight to prove their worth. No struggle, no adventure — just pay to stay."
