If you live in New York City, you most likely don’t have access to Verizon’s very 21st-century fiber optic internet service, FiOS.

That Time New York City Wanted to Put Highways On Top of Its Skyscrapers

Some might say New Yorkers had more money than sense in the Roaring Twenties. Somewhat profoundly, John K. Hencken's idea to build highways on top of skyscrapers in Manhattan required both.

It doesn't matter if the payments are in crumpled, wet $1 bills or casual swipes of a black Amex: New York City makes a shitload of money from fees and fines, and it's looking for new ways to get people to pay up.
