  Free Imperial City - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some favored cities gained a charter by gift and others were wealthy enough to purchase theirs from a prince in need of cash; some won it by force of arms, others usurped it during times of anarchy; a number of cities secured their freedom through the extinction of dominant families, like the Hohenstaufen.
Free and imperial cities were only officially admitted as a Reichsstand to the Reichstag in 1489, and even then their votes were usually considered only to be advisory compared to the Benches of the Kurfürsten (Electors) and the Princes.
That way, in Alsace, Strasbourg and the ten cities of the Décapole were annexed, as had been the free cities connected to the Three Bishoprics of Metz, Verdun and Toul a century earlier by the troops of King Henry II.

Under British rule the City of New York continued to develop, and while there was growing sentiment in the city for greater political independence, the area was decidedly split in its loyalties during the New York Campaign, a series of major early battles during the American Revolutionary War.

 Free Press : Culver City Offers Free Wi-Fi ‘EnterNot’ Access
Culver City is offering public wi-fi access to the Internet with two big caveats: It’s not really the Internet, and to use it you agree to give up your civil rights.
(“By using this free wireless network you are agreeing and acknowledging you have read and accepted these terms and conditions of use, and this wireless network provides only limited access to the Internet.”) In other words, they do not offer Internet access at all.
From a legal standpoint, it is the same as if the Culver City public library were offering you free access to newspapers, but was first clipping out the articles it didn’t like and making you agree not to sue for censorship if you wanted to read what was left.

 STAFF EDIT: Keep Boston a toll-free city - Opinion
But Boston is not London, and with several major transit and transportation projects in questionable shape, the city is not prepared to force another dramatic shift in the way Bostonians travel.
For the last decade and a half, the city has poured enormous resources into a project (the Big Dig) to more quickly move hundreds of thousands of vehicles into the city.
Instead of punishing drivers for what they have been trained to do, the city should entice them to utilize public transport by improving and extending city transit lines and making suburban bus lines more convenient.
