I'm really disappointed about the loss of MDW-EWR. I often need to be in Jersey, where it makes no sense to use LGA (outside of IRROPS). Not looking forward to having to use ORD instead.

I'll add my plug for Eris Brewery & Cider House (https://www.erischicago.com/) on Irving just west of the blue line. Good beers, great ciders. Great food too.

Agreed. I've absolutely used the balconies at the CY Jersey City. They're not terribly useful or have a great view (view west to JC, not east to NYC), but they were open.

Yeah, there's a big difference between being in your set of 5 and jumping up 15+ spots. I notice that she was careful not to jump all the way to BS, so she knew exactly what she was doing.

ADA changes from time to time. Sounds like they're making updates to meet current requirements that are newer than when the restrooms were last redone.

It's automatic, you don't have to setup anything extra. I know it always took a little longer than NFC, so I suspect it would try NFC, then if that failed, try MST, maybe alternating or something. ...

Don't you have to reprice the whole thing? ie, if one has gone up and one down, you can't just take the points back for the one that went down. Or has that gotten fixed somewhere along the way?
