Sound Off To The Editor

Take me back to baseball of years ago. That bygone era included the traditional doubleheaders on Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day. Now, in their haste to bring in as much money as possible, doubleheaders have become a thing of the past, with the exception of games being made up due to earlier postponements because of rain. Now, even in that case, the Major League teams make sure to schedule day-night affairs so that they can charge double admission to the public. Comment

Verrazano goes cashless starting July 8

The city will roll out cashless tolling on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge for smoother commutes starting July 8. The span will join six other city bridges that have eliminated toll booths as part of Gov. Cuomo’s cashless initiative, and is swapping singles for sensors that will scan and charge drivers through their license plates. Here’s what ridge-to-rock drivers should know about the change.
