Does history repeat itself?
Never literally…..but always conceptually
It’s always wise to look at the past,
And relate the past to current circumstances.
How we acted
How we reacted
How we innovated
How we were defeated
How we responded
The MTA is taking us on a ride back in history on vintage subways and bus rides
every Sunday until the end of 2010.
I look forward to the day my children will be going on a historic tour of electric cars that their parents’ generation once used.
Designer Marco Castro Cosio has created “Bus Roots”, a public project that designs and customizes green roof systems for buses. Much like green roofs and vertical gardens, Bus Roots is said to increase green living in cities with limited space, like NYC, by growing gardens on top of the numerous buses traveling around cities. Cosio said that the project is a way to “[reconnect] urban communities with nature in a practical and playful way”. BioBus is the first hub for the Bus Roots green roof and we have no doubt that it will generate a lot of attention. According to Cosio, if he was to grow a garden on the roof of all the MTA buses, 4,500 to be exact, it would be equivalent in size to four Bryant Parks! Now that is something that we would like to see! Check out more about Bus Roots here.
