  It’s Wednesday. ????The singer Mariah Carey of Long Island is 49 today.

  Weather: Today is sunny, but the wind chill may make it feel as if it’s in the mid-20s or mid-30s. Thursday may be in the 50s. Friday may be in the 60s.

  Alternate-side parking: In effect until April 18 (Holy Thursday).

  New York is poised to put in place the country’s first congestion pricing plan, which would charge drivers entering the busiest stretches of Manhattan.

  Many supporters and critics rely on neat, simple talking points when debating the proposal, which would help pay for repairs to the city’s subway system.

  [Here’s what else you need to know about congestion pricing.]

  So we spoke to two state lawmakers with more nuanced views: Senator Todd Kaminsky, a Long Island Democrat, and Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther, a Democrat representing an area northwest of New York City.

  Mr. Kaminsky:

   A Newsday article said you oppose the current bill.

  The current version. I think we’ll be able to get to a good version that both helps the region and helps Long Islanders.

  What I’ve asked for, and what the Long Island senators have asked for, is a dedicated revenue stream outside of congestion pricing to fund infrastructure improvements to the Long Island Rail Road.

  You’re asking people to get out of their cars, then the mass transit needs to work better. The railroads had its worst on-time record in nearly two decades. It’s a mess.

   Is congestion pricing a tax on low-income and working-class people?

  Long Island people driving into the city, who are already paying a good amount to live on Long Island and commute, would certainly not see it favorably. I don’t know if they use the “tax” word. I don’t think anyone’s asking for this on Long Island. The question is, can there be a commensurate benefit to balance it?

   Someone suggested an exemption for New York City residents.

  [Laughs] I think different people have different regional needs.

   Is there a way to make congestion pricing just for the rich? Can only luxury vehicles be charged?

  The only specific on vehicles that has been brought up is an exemption for motorcycles.

   I’m sure the motorcycle lobby is happy about that.

  I was trying to think of a joke about popping a wheelie.

  When people reflect in five years, what will this look like?

  I think this is going to be commonplace in a lot of cities.

  Ms. Gunther:

   I wanted to talk to a critic of congestion pricing.

  I’m not going to be very long-winded, because I represent Orange and Sullivan Counties. In Sullivan County, we have no mass transit at all. And we have a Short Line bus system that, if you worked in New York City, you have to leave at 4 o’clock in the morning or you’d be late for work.

  We also already pay M.T.A. taxes in Orange County. And for the service, it’s pretty pathetic.

  No mass transit at all?

  We do have a train that leaves at certain times of the day. And if there’s a problem on the track, you’re out of luck. There’s another word I could put in there, but I’m not going to.

   You could.

  I’m not going to. [Mocking voice] It’s so darn unladylike.

  I care greatly about the environment. But at this point, we have to really go back and think about upstate, downstate. You can’t do mass transit in a piecemeal manner. We’re all taxpayers.

   How does congestion pricing affect your constituents?

  Orange County is the last county you can live in if you’re on the New York Police Department or the Fire Department of New York. We’re not talking about the richy Wall Street people. We’re not talking about those.

  There are a lot of folks that are commuting and at crazy hours, but the frequency of the trains aren’t there.

  Anyway, I got to go, ‘cause we’re working on this stupid bu — I shouldn’t say stupid budget. But we’re working on this impossible budget!

   Do you consider congestion pricing a tax on the working class?

  It definitely impacts working-class people the most.

From The Times

  The world’s tallest politician: It’s City Councilman Robert Cornegy Jr. of Brooklyn, who is 6 feet 10 inches tall, according to Guinness World Records.

  Segregation has been the story of New York City’s schools for 50 years.

And finally: A sketchy restaurant aficionado

  At the first newspaper that hired me, I wrote restaurant reviews. My editor offered a legitimate-sounding piece of advice: Because I wasn’t a food expert, I should skip writing about what the food exactly tasted like. Instead, she said, focus on the ambience, the setting and, heck, even the bathroom.

  Thus began my nearly three years of inadequate restaurant reviews, in which I factually described the food, without saying much by way of recommendations. The food was never the main story; it was always the restaurant itself.

  This came to mind when I was reading about John Donohue, who is attempting to draw sketches of every restaurant in New York City. A book of his sketches will be published in May.

  As my colleague John Leland wrote, Mr. Donohue “rarely eats at restaurants, and has tried very few of the 102 included in his book or the ongoing array on his website.” The sketchbook is more of a time capsule of a quickly changing landscape. Restaurants come and go, but New York’s appetite is forever.

  By the time Mr. Donohue put together his sketches for a book, Mr. Leland continued, “at least six of the restaurants were gone.” Some were replaced by other eateries, waiting to be sketched.

  It’s Wednesday — be sketchy.

Metropolitan Diary: Busy sidewalk

  Dear Diary:

  I was walking along 60th Street with my 4-year-old son. We were going from Central Park to our apartment on Columbus Avenue.

  An older woman with a white cane was navigating the busy sidewalk. I explained to my son that she was blind and that we should offer to help her.

  We introduced ourselves, and she said her name was Shirley. She accepted our help gratefully. She said she was going to Roosevelt Hospital, not far out of our way.

  As we walked, Shirley told us about herself. She mentioned that she had taken the A train down from 165th Street for her doctor’s appointment, something she typically did on her own.

  We got to the hospital and parted ways.

  Later that week, I brought my 8-year-old daughter to a play date in Washington Heights. It was going to be our first time in the neighborhood. As we rode uptown on the subway, I told my daughter about meeting the blind woman earlier in the week.

  We left the subway at 168th Street and started toward our destination. Within two blocks, I spotted Shirley.

  “Shirley?” I called out.

  “Joel,” she said. “Is that you?”
