100 Ideas for New York

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?



The group behind New York City-based Biber Architects is very clear when they say they love their city ... but they also think it could use a few improvements:

Though we love The City, we don't exactly admire it. And there is nothing more New York than complaining about The City we love ... These 100 Ideas are not all serious, but not all risible either. They are about making The City an even more incredible place to live, for those who can't live without it.

Their ideas -- two of which have been released so far -- currently include sidewalk tourist lanes and free city-wide Wi-Fi. Check the Biber website next week for its newest NYC solution ... and perhaps borrow a few for your own neighborhood.

KEEP PHOENIX NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
