All growth is vertical in NYC.

In order to make all the English tourists feel more comfortable, the MTA rolled out its new eco-friendly, cost-efficient, double-decker buses today, which will run along selected routes in Manhattan for the next month. According to City Room, a double-decker bus called the Queen Mary ran up and down 5th Avenue in the 1950s, but was eventually removed on account of its “ripped vinyl seats, sloping aisle and grandmother’s-house smell.” My guess is that these will fare better.
