    that make summer in the city hard to bear Steamy Platforms A Complaint as Old as the Subways By Jake Mooney Whether you like summer weather or not there is something dispiriting about walking down into a subway station on a hot day and despite a brief respite from the sun encountering even worse heat than you faced outdoors It has been a problem for years more or less for as long as the subways have existed and for just as long people have been complaining about it I am among them I entered the Lower East Side Second Avenue station on the F train the other day after a hot walk from Tompkins Square Park I was hit squarely in the face with a wall of heat that made me wish I had walked home Read more Nancy s comment 31 Good article chronic problem I propose that subway air conditioners be turned off 20 seconds before trains enter their station stops and turned back on 20 seconds after they depart In this way people would stay cool in the cars while saving power While we re at it the TA should install timer thermostats in all its subways

    if they want to do something with a longer shelf life you need legislation or a lasting bureaucratic structure that is hard to break up says Nancy Anderson executive director of the Sallan Foundation in the Christian Science Monitor Worldwide New York is known as the Big Apple but if Mayor Michael Bloomberg gets his way it will become the Green Apple Under his vision for the city there will be a park within a ten minute walk of all residents A million new trees will shade streets and filter out carbon dioxide Anyone driving on those streets will have to pay extra if it s in congested Manhattan And there will be new subways and buses so New Yorkers won t mind taking mass transit Those are just some of the changes introduced Sunday on Earth Day by Mr Bloomberg His goal is to reduce the city s greenhouse gas emissions 30 percent by 2030 He wants his town to have the cleanest air the purest water and the best land use practices The mayor s ambitious program of 127 separate initiatives has more than local ramifications because New York represents 1 percent of total US greenhouse gas emissions
