New York Times Wins Five Pulitzer Prizes

NEW YORK — The New York Times won five Pulitzer Prizes in journalism on Monday, the second-most in its history. It was a bittersweet victory for The Times as all five writers had been laid off their awards are being added to 101 other Pulitzers that were won over the years, the first awarded in 1917 and being sold on eBay to pay late utility bills.

Other icons of industry in New York are fighting the economy too, The Empire State Building has assessed a $5 look up zone around the skyscraper on 34 Street to anyone walking while looking up. According to building officials, it is a nominal fee and only applies to a small percentage of passersby.

The New York MTA is implementing a pay as you go fee, deputizing subway break dancers to collect $1 surcharge per passenger or walk. This will not apply during rush hours or after 2am.

And the familiar yellow cabs are going high tech. If you ride a yellow cab, it's going to cost you to turn down the volume on the in-cab video screens. $1 for every db, up to $5 for mute.

Everyone is being affected by tough times, help stimulate the economy and recycle your unused Pulitzers, Emmys, Grammys and other gold awards.
