But the New York International Auto Show won’t open to the public until Saturday, and the press preview days are still underway. Welcome to the preshow off-site launch circuit. For two weeks, the New York show is the center of the automotive universe. Last year, 61 vehicles made their debuts at the show.

Its New York location will be in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens, while its Arlington offices will be located in an area called National Landing. Each site will get 25,000 jobs.

At least it did, once. When Uber launched in New York in 2011, the company described its vision as a win-win for everyone. “Uber brings the convenience of a yellow cab, the quality of a luxury limo, and adds an Uber cherry on top—on-demand mobile requests,” the company said. The rosy pitch … [Read more...] about How New York Became the Center of the Fight Against Uber and the Gig Economy Lie
