@Dave Cutter I'm not sure if your trolling or simply dense. But in NYC subway ridership is up. More and more people are moving into cities and not just NYC. For many of us cities provide excellent bang for the buck. NYC is still the financial capital of America if not the world. We film many TV shows and movies. And are one of the fashion powerhouses of the world. We contribute greatly to the U.S. and world economies. Probably much more then where ever it is you live. Might I suggest you spew your nonsense in the politics forum?
Back on topic. Besides what I already said about Citibike they have one more issue to address and that is bike redistribution. I've noticed that bikes tend to hard to going into manhattan in the morning and all end up scattered around Brooklyn in the evening. Some docks such as the one at Grand Central never seem to enough bikes. Apparently this was a problem for D.C. but they have greatly improved.
