Last night was the kind of evening when most people want to curl up under a blanket watch the latest episode of 106 & Park or 30 Rock. With temperatures in the lower teens, I wondered how many of the new Radio Rookies would make the 1.5 hour trek from their neighborhood down to Soho to visit WNYC Radio for the first time.
Those new Bronx Rookies showed me--all 7 made the trip! While at the station the Rookies listened to Rookie graduate Keith’s Valentine's Day story, had a chance to sit in Leonard Lopate’s studio and get the behind the microphone, and a Daily News reporter interviewed them for an article.

We ended 2013 with a Singles Holiday Mixer in The Greene Space at WNYC/WQXR. We had food, drinks, a holiday sing-a-long and lots of cheer. Enjoy!
(New York, NY -- Stephen Nessen, WNYC) The 109-year old Willis Avenue bridge drifted down the East River early Tuesday morning as it headed for Jersey City. It was replaced last July as part of a $612 million project. Full slide show here.

The White House has announced that it will not release photos of Osama bin Laden’s death. Quoting the transcript of President Obama’s upcoming interview with 60 Minutes, set to air this Sunday, White House Spokesperson Jay Carney told reporters that, “It is important for us to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to further violence or as a propaganda tool.” Some very graphic photos from the raid have already been published by The Guardian. Is the release of graphic photos a good idea?
To discuss the administration’s decision to withhold photos of Osama bin Laden’s body, we speak with Fred Ritchin, professor of Photography and Imaging at at New York University, and author of “After Photography.”
Fred Ritchin was the photo editor at The New York Times Magazine from 1978 – 1982.
TN readers: here's your summer assignment: while you're vacationing this summer, take a picture of what you think is a good representation of a transportation mode, wherever you happen to be.
We're interested in seeing what strikes you about transportation and transit in other places. Are the street signs clear? How's the boat traffic? Are the taxis wheelchair-friendly?
Can you easily get a stroller onto a bus? Are there two-way protected bike lanes? And yes, for those of you remaining chez vous this summer, submissions from your staycation are allowed.
Email your pictures to transponation@ gmail.com by midnight on Labor Day (Monday, September 5) with a brief description of your photo, including your name and where and when the picture was taken.
We'll be posting highlights from your submissions. The winning photo will be announced after Labor Day and the photographer will receive a WNYC Chico sling bag.
And have a happy TranspoVacation!
