While thousands of daily Long Island Rail Road commuters cope with service disruptions as Amtrak makes emergency repairs to Penn Station, this “Summer of Hell,” as Gov. Andrew Cuomo has dubbed the riders’ next two months, was about to become a dire season of stress for the LIRR because a final decision on its $2-billion third track project was suddenly delayed until the end of July—and its fate appeared in jeopardy. But a late announcement Tuesday, July 11, from state Senate Majority Leader John J. Flanagan (R-East Northport) has put the proposal from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority for Long Island back on track. As planned, the LIRR would add another track to its busy 9.8-mile corridor between Floral Park... Read More

Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates doesn’t star Kevin Costner, but it is set in a Neo-Victorian New York that’s under water from rising sea levels. It’s Coin Operated Games’ debut, and it launches this fall on Steam’s PC gaming store. Set in the 1910s, the game takes its aesthetic cues from the Victorian era, which ended at the turn of the century. Creative director John Randall said that accomplishing that took a lot of research, as they wanted to not only create a Neo-Victorian look but also incorporate as many historical details as possible. The team referred to books like Professional Criminals of America (Thomas Byrnes, 1886) and How the Other Half Lives (Jacob Riis, 1890), and also New York ... Read More
