Fight for Old Subway Cars
One of the best ways to make an artifical reef is to push old subway cars into the ocean. Many states are realizing how great the subway cars are for the fish population and want to use them also. However, the problem is that there are not a lot of subway cars to go around. Using subway cars for artificial reefs started in 2001 when Delaware was the first state to receive the old New York subway cars for free. First of all, this was not good for the New York economy because simply giving things away is not always the best way to get rid of old products. There should be a price involved. Secondly, New York needs to open up to other states besides Delaware so that the best market price will be received for the old subway cars. Utilizing the knowledge that the old cars from New York are useful to other states can increase the benefits of getting rid of the cars. The benefits would come in because the subway cars would then have a price on them. Overall, this will actually help New York, as well as the other states that are purchasing the cars. To better the economy, states need to work together, like a business, rather than just simply giving away free hand outs.
