THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE

Attraction

Back in the early days, when most Americans were on a very tight budget. Oftentimes, New Yorkers would venture down to Battery Park on a hot summer night and ride the Staten Island Ferry for entertainment. In those days it cost a few cents. Today, it is actually free. If you ask, you will find that some New Yorkers have wonderful memories of buying standing room tickets for various shows. I seem to recall seeing one of these shows and it is to this day, one of my many marvelous memories.

Ultra Deep Field

Attraction

This is is what happened when professional astronomers pointed the Hubble Space Telescope at absolutely nothing and left it there, first for 10 days, and then for 11 days. Then they made the images into a 3-D presentation. Hang on to your seat! By the way, 13 billion light years are about equal to 880,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 miles.

NEW YORK CITY'S UNIQUE ONLINE NEWS SERVICE

Solution

In many parts of New York City, news and information content is limited to local events. That is because residents living in many Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island neighborhoods usually have several newspapers to choose from. However, The Bronx has a smaller variety of news and information outlets because it has struggled with poverty, high unemployment and crime rates over the past years.
