I don't think most of the people on this thread are the SW&D type.

I'm more a fan of the classic retail environment.

Haven't really read through this thread but I can say that I was in NYC three weeks ago, for a week, and loved the place.

 

Won't bore you with the details - which I assure you are utterly mundane - but it's a great place.

 

The main reason NYC sucks for me is sour grapes.

The fire marshall just called me to get the details and we discussed Kitty Genovese. He said there were a lot of calls this morning.

That's good to hear. Why did he call you back, in particular? Were you the first one to call it in?

I am sensitized to this because, years ago, I came out of my building to see smoke pouring out of the one next door and a crowd of people standing around watching. I asked one of the watchers if someone had called the fire department and he said, "I'm sure someone must have!" That gave me a really bad feeling so I ran back inside and called 911. No one else had called. I was the first.

In turned out there was someone inside, asleep. The fire department said if they'd gotten there two minutes later, he would have been dead. That would have ruined the rest of my day so I'm really glad that I took the initiative.

I think it's standard procedure. I was very specific in my initial description as I has a front row seat.

 

Years ago in NS I pulled an elderly couple out of their car after it partially overturned in a small river during a torrential thunderstorm. Got them to the shore as my wife found a highway mileage marker and called 911. Later that night I received a call from the head of the local RCMP unit thanking me. Go Canada.

Gonna go out on a limb and say that is due to it being autumn.

new commute has me taking the 4-5 downtown.


am considering taking a different and longer commute in order to avoid the 4-5.

The two IRT lines are total cattle cars,especially during the rush. People attempt to mitigate the experience the by seeking out end cars or varying their arrive/depart time, but even these remedies offer scant relief. What is your start point? Is the R an option?

new gig has me just below Pace U. J is an option, but that also can get shitty. Right now, it's L to 4-5 at 14 and then off at Fulton. Could stay on the L two more stops and get the A-C down to Fulton St, but of course that's adding a good chunk of time.

Maybe switch to R @ USQ - take it 3 stops to City Hall which is 2 min walk to Fulton St
post #10875 of 11477
if the 4-5 continues to suck balls, I'll give the R a look, or maybe the J (which wouldn't require transfer, though it's a longer walk from apartment).


having a view of the Brooklyn Bridge is very nice.
