Tens of thousands of commuters are bracing for a difficult trip around southwest Connecticut and into New York City beginning Monday as workers repair the Metro-North commuter rail line crippled by a derailment and crash.
New York City's Grand Central terminal, an iconic facility located at the hub of city happenings in midtown Manhattan, celebrates 100th birthday Friday.
A New York state report has found that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority gave Apple an unfair advantage to place a retail store in New York City's Grand Central Terminal. The state comptroller's report says the MTA started talking to Apple about the space more than two years before opening it up for bidding. It says the "competitive process followed by MTA ...was at a minimum severely slanted toward Apple." MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota says the lease process was open and transparent. Apple didn't respond to requests for comment. The store opened in Grand Central in December, and is one of the world's largest Apple stores.
