Re: 10 things NYC should do now that Amazon HQ2 deal is over

What is needed with regard to trash in the subways is strict enFORCEment of the law assisted by more trash containers on platforms so that nobody will have an excuse not to properly dispose of trash. That being said, many years ago, many transfer stations like 34/6, Times Sq, Grand Central and Union Sq just to name a few and even some platforms had snack bars where passengers could grab light refreshment. Those snack bar also had trash bins for passengers to easily dispose of their garbage. In addition to the snack bars, there were other shops in the subway like record shops, book stores and even clothing stores all of which paid rent to the NYCTA bringing additional revenue over and above what goes into the turnstile. Maybe some if not all facilities of this type could be brought back into the system to alleviate some of the MTA’s financial problems. There were also newsstands at many of the stations on the system providing passengers with the convenience of purchasing their newspapers in the subway instead of having top try and find a newsstand on the street. All of these things could bring much needed funds into the transit system.
