Mayor de Blasio has pledged $250 million to make some of New York City's most dangerous streets safer for pedestrians.

The City Council met today to outline its plan for that funding, and announced that four streets in Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx are getting overhauled. Improvements will include extending curbs, widening road medians, and adding protected bicycle lanes.

On March 2, 1962, a young Wilt Chamberlain set one of the most famous records in sports, scoring 100 points in one basketball game for the Philadelphia Warriors in their win over the New York Knicks. It got us thinking about some great records in music: Elton John’s 64 (or even more?) concerts at MSG? Bruce’s 4 hour, 6 minute show in Helsinki? (Which pales in comparison to Canadian musican’s Gonzales’ world record 27-hour concert in 2009). Know any other good records? Comment on the page.
