It would just be an extension of the G essentially. You've never tried to get to Astoria from Brooklyn? It's a fucking nightmare.

I used to take the G to Tip Top in Greenpoint. But after a while I accumulated like 40 pieces of cloth and realized I had gone insane, so I stopped going.

I'd just Uber it. It's a cost:pain ratio, and past 8 PM a train would be every 15 minutes and slow. A car would be a couple bucks and far faster.

Well yeah, I take a cab now, but it would be nice if you didn't have to. Also the Williamsburg to Park Slope trip would be easier.

My work group, from MD to Analyst, was all going to go to this bahn-mi place that we all heard about. We got our coats on because apparently you have to go early. And then we all realized that we have no idea where it is or what it is, we merely heard that there’s a good bahn-mi place in the Tribeca neighborhood.

we suck.

I know, it has to be done. Half of my group is out sick so I've been dumped with projects. Early next week.

Gentrification sucks.

Come on now, it doesn't suck that bad. This is what all the regulars said when you first walked in.

I can see why this would be a problem in Williamsburg.

Is that place in your 'hood? Would have been fun, but was kind of a date on my only non-work night of a short trip.

I take it you know that place? I thought the food was just OK, but that's based on a single visit.

I was talking to Gome, Lawyerdad. He lives a 15 minute walk from me.
