Here are the top five floors of New York City today:
- Transit advocates gather for New York City trains and buses to arrive every 6 minutes at all times, while, according to a recent survey, only 48% of New Yorkers were happy with waiting times in the transit system. The MTA’s budget deficit is currently at $1.6 billion as passenger traffic remains stalled at pre-pandemic levels. (Gothamist)
- When he was president of the Brooklyn Borough, now Mayor Eric Adams introduced ‘fermented’ poison bucket traps as a solution to curbing New York City’s rat population. Several years later, a study from the pilot program allowed traps to emerge. Experts say the best way to end (or at least reduce) the current rat infestation in the city is to reduce the food supply of the rodents. (New York City Patch)
- There were 1,600 confirmed cases of corporal punishment in New York state schools from 2016 to 2021, according to Department of Education documents — a large portion of which came from New York City public schools., although New York City’s school issues did not indicate whether teachers or other employees faced discipline. (Times Union)
- Speaking of schools, some New York City parents say their children’s public schools still use a popular but potentially inappropriate curriculum, which can make it more difficult for students to learn how to read. Schools Chancellor David Banks had previously pledged to replace the programme, known as the Calkins Curriculum. (Gothamist)
- New York City elected officials and the Consul General of Pakistan gathered over the weekend to raise awareness of the catastrophic flooding in the country Which they said has affected 33 million people and claimed 1,600 lives since June. (New York 1)
