The subway positioning thing is kind of stupid, because I mean you are going to have to walk the distance anyway, right? Either now or when you get off the train. I have begun not getting on the perfect transfer cars because EVERYBODY knows about it already and those cars are jam packed. For my morning commute it is comical how crowded the "perfect transfer" cars are compared to the rest.

When the shoeshine boy offers you a stock tip, sell the market.

Begging has risen considerably in the last 6 months.

Now, me being a rational person, I take this to mean that all the government services meant to address this have either been closed, or have been proven ineffective. If so, can I have my tax money back? Then I'll start making more donations.

My wife and her brother were the ultimate "must get on most efficient route!" commuters. In fairness there are some really nice shortcuts to connections in the 14th ST USQ station (as well as 6th and 8th ave stations).

But sometimes like weekends I'd purposely take a longer route - like the other side of the park exit when you are going to the farmers market because its nice to walk, and my wife would be annoyed by the fact that I wanted to walk though the park.

Yeah, but those thirty seconds used before the train comes could mean the difference between missing the transfer and waiting for the next train.

This weather reminds me of reading about the Blizzard of 1888. NYC got 22 inches of snow and surrounding areas got as much as like 60 or something. 80 mile an hour winds. At the time it was when most of New York still had all overhead electric cables. Many of them fell and caused deaths, injuries, outages. It was after that storm that the city mandated the power company, then several companies (Safety Electric Light and Power, Edison Electric Illuminating company of Brooklyn, and Brush Electric Light Company among others) to bury the wires in the city.

This was also the Blizzard where Evander Berry Wall was honored the title "King of the Dudes" by reporter Blakely Hall when he "out-dressed" actor Robert "Handsome Bob" Hilliard strolling into Hoffman House bar wearing thigh high patent leather boots.

A lot of neat things happen during storms, I guess?
