There will be a new building at the Teleport business park, which is located at South Avenue. The Teleport is a suburban style 100-acre business park located on the west side of the Bulls Head neighborhood. In the mid-1980’s, the New York City teamed with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to managed it under contract.

On January 1st, 2015, New York City’s Sanitation Department announced, informing residents they were no longer allowed to throw away their electronics. This was due to the toxic and dangerous substances electronics contained.

With every bridge in New York City that has a toll system, Governor Cuomo announces a plan to increase toll areas, making it automatic, with fewer headaches, especially if there is an issue with payment. The automatic tollbooth will scan the license and send a bill later in a week or so.

Since bridges are a target for terrorist, Cuomo is taking precaution by increasing security. He is planning to combine anti-terrorism teams with traffic enforcements. For this project taking in effect, job opportunities will be available. By increasing…
