NYC's Radial Solutions

New York City's solutions are radial. Go a 10-minute hyperloop distance in many directions. Look at this map.





I am talking Middletown, NY, on I84, northwest of the city, where I lived until recently for more than six months. You are looking at Allentown, PA. Also Quakertown, and Doylestown nearby. You are looking at Newtown near Danbury, CT. You are looking at the east end of Long Island, the Hamptons. The rich don't need helicopter rides. Philadelphia itself would be a good candidate, except it falls conveniently on the already proposed Boston-NYC-DC hyperloop corridor.

Specific towns have to be identified that are the right distance and that are politically willing to become sister cities. Less than 10 minutes in hyperloop distance does not make either hyperloop sense or environmental sense.

The idea is also good for the environment. If more than 50% of humanity will congregate in 100 megacities, that will be good for the planet. It will also be good for commerce.

An expanded Penn Station can handle the traffic.
