This month's newsletter is set to music, and illuminates how the subway is the life-blood of New Yorkers.

Before we spend hundreds of billions of dollars on new neighborhoods above Sunnyside Yards, we must provide new subway lines for the residents who are thriving here now.
"Soul of the City" - A poem set to music in praise of the New York City subways, written by Sunnyside resident, Jeff Vogel. (Music by Joe Gutierrez).
