Well, it took almost 100 years to build the Q line extension so take your bets on how are they going to build a whole UWS sized neighborhood off Fidi


Let's do it!


There are so many empty units in all those ugly overpriced high-rise buildings

Quote from the article:

> In addition to physically providing more land to help NYC better meet the demand for residential housing, it would also “push vulnerable places like Wall and Broad Streets further inland, and the peninsula can be designed with specific protections around its coastline to buffer itself and the rest of the city from flooding,” he explained of its global warming-based appeal.

Lol, yes, make more walls for the castle of Wall Street. Sheeeeeet this is sounding like the “outer rings of Ba sing se” lmaoooo. It’s an interesting idea. But after seeing salesforce tower in San Francisco start sinking and nobody knows why or how to solve it I’m not confident in my countries architects at the moment. In Michigan we use our trash to make ski hills lol.

The time it would take to build

And then...the cost of everything which will outrage people who thought the new construction was all supposed to be "affordable"

I would suggest to ban foreign ownership and ban pied a terres and to tax the hell out of current foreign nonresident owners

Like a 50x increase in property tax if you don't also live in NYC full-time and pay full time income tax

Coerce them all into selling

Agreed. This city is expensive is because of the luxury buildings for foreign investors


So silly

I love the idea of OE, but probably cannot sustain 2 FT j’s. Does anyone have a good resource to look at low-scope second j’s? Was imagining something with flexible, “work when you want” type work. Maybe 10 hours p/wk, but can be a solid supplement?

Hello Fish,

are there any software engineers who work at 
Cisco that can shed some light on what it's like working there as an engineer?

Cisco is at the top of my list because of their reputation, the good reviews from employees, and for their efforts in social good.

I currently work as a database admin at a homeless youth shelter in LA, and Cisco is our most generous donor. I'm finishing up my bootcamp and would love to hear if Cisco is a good place for me to try joining.

Posted about this a while back but didn’t get a definitive response. I have a bunch of Manhattan prep GMAT books from the past few years that have little to no writing in them. There’s probably 20 of them so pretty heavy but I’m looking to give this away to someone for free. Only thing is I asked for you to take all of them versus just a few. I live in downtown Manhattan near the stock exchange and hoping to give by the 24th. Thanks!


Need advice - I came back to my apartment yesterday morning. I live with two girls and we said good morning before I jumped into calls for 6+ hours and I left at dinnertime (still away from apartment). Just now one of them texted me that she tested positive for rapid testing last night. How early should I get tested for COVID, and what are my chances? I'm really scared because she was fine in the morning, and I am supposed to take care of my family member on Friday...
