New York City Cooling Centers

When the heat index, which is an estimate of how it feels when air temperature and humidity are combined, is predicted to be dangerously high, New York City opens cooling centers in air-conditioned facilities to offer people relief from the heat.

Locations where cooling centers are located include:

Community centers
Senior centers
NYCHA facilities

You should use a cooling center during a heatwave if you have no access to a cool environment, and particularly if you are at risk for heat-related illness.

MTA MetroCard/OMNY Fare Conversion

As some of you may be aware, tomorrow the MTA will begin the first phase of their much larger project to phase out the MetroCard and replace it with an updated payment system called OMNY (standing for One Metropolitan New York). Before you fret, don’t worry, the MetroCard will not be officially phased out of existence until 2023. However, some changes will be coming up (you may have seen the new fare card readers on some subway turnstiles around the City), so below is a short summary of the program in case you have any questions.
