NYC Brings Back the Old Lever Voting Machines for today's primary
NYC Primary Election September 10, 2013

and candidates with ideas from the past.
The city switched to electronic scanners in 2010 but is bringing back the old levers today because of logistics because there most likely will be a run-off election for Mayor.
Nostalgia: Bringing back old machines makes sense since the leading candidate wants to bring back NYC to the 1970's. He is running an anti Bloomberg campaign. Of course Bloomberg is not running. He wants to go back to the good old days of The Dinkins administration.

The beautiful September day today was much like the day 11 years ago. However, today I began my day at a closing that took place in an office on the 77th floor of The Empire State Building. It took a while waiting for the bank to show up with the funds but the view of Manhattan was worth the wait.

After my closing I had to show an apartment in the Village. As I walked along Houston Street (pronouced How Stun) I saw the new Word Trade Center tower from every block I passed by … (11 comments)
