    I hear you. And I know living here does not eliminate this kind of thing: running a bt behind schedule myself the other morning I heard a train coming into the station so I hustled down the stairs w/ my metrocard at the ready. Swiped and rammed my groin into an unyielding turnstyle. Moved down the line form turnstyle to turnstyle all w/ the same result. I staggered back as the train pulled out and saw that every single turnstyle had a red 'no cards/no takens' sign, but the ememrgency exit door had been roped open...

    it's usually much faster to get around via train. And when traffic is gone, driving can still be a harrowing experience with the awful cab drivers who will not hesitate to run you off the road. And parking garages are about $500 a month.

    83 degrees here. Have the top on my jeep down, don't expect rain for ten days at least. Simply beautiful.

    Forgot over the summer, but audiences at the philharmonic, and to a lesser extent CH totally suck.

    I hate NYC as much as the next guy (probably more than the next guy as I think about it), but sounds to me like there is something else going on in Manton's life.

    I'd bet he misses California terribly right about now.

    (and yes, I know the traffic is bad in NYC, I giggled as I typed it.)

    Took a visiting cousin of mine who lives in some fancy tall Chelsea/Flatiron building to lunch today. He was complaining about the lack of good Japanese food so I took him to Hannosuke and after the first bite of scallop tempura I thought he was going to cry.
