Light Rail in New York

Maybe of interest only to an urban-planning wonk-wannabe like me, but this New York Times article discusses the possibility of building a light-rail line across 42nd Street. I think it's a good, or at least intriguing, idea - I remember being stuck for a good half hour on the M42 between Fifth and Sixth... they still need a Second Avenue Line though.

Speaking of 42nd Street, former Ziegfield dancer Doris Eaton Travis is returning to Broadway to the New Amsterdam on 42nd St... let's put it this way, when she first danced at the Amsterdam, the flu pandemic was sweeping the world, and the Boston Red Sox had just won their third World Series in four years (from waterbones, who also linked to this really lovely story about a wholphin).
