New York city has certainly seen better days, and this, unfortunately, is an understatement. The subways seem to be progressively deteriorating, the outlook on affordable housing is bleak, and homeless rates keep on rising. Fortunately, there are many attractions that are providing hope to NYC’s current and future residents by restoring its natural roots. The year of 2018 brought the NYC Ferry to the architecture of the East River which is providing an easier way for people to commute across the city.
- Politics and construction set the focus for New York City in 2018. Young politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revolved their conversations around gentrification, housing and inequality.
- The impending arrival of Amazon warehouses in Queens will set the stage for an ongoing debate that will linger for months to come.
- In 2018, the NYC Ferry expanded to more locations. This shows that it is slowly being accepted as a viable transportation option by New Yorkers.
“There’s no such thing as a boring year in New York City, with efforts in urban planning, new construction, and politics continually pushing things forward.”
