Again, there's cause to wonder: does Page Six Magazine purposely refuse to edit the ramblings of heiress-model Lydia Hearst so that their magazine will be mentioned online? "It's absurd that the MTA is raising the rate of the monthly MetroCard but keeping the single rate fair [SIC!] at $2, so the tourists keep their discount. As a New Yorker, I feel like I am being penalized because I ride the subway more often than not and buy the unlimited 30-day card," begins Lydia's latest.
It's going up to $81 now. The subway is the easiest and cheapest way to get around. And unfortunately it's the only way during rush hour. I am in favor of the congestion tax, though. People who live and work here all year round should get some sort of exemption sticker and driving visitors should be taxed. Traffic is getting out of control.Maybe soon Lydia will reveal to us who she's voting for and why! Please please!
