Why is the New York City subway causing me such trouble this trip? Some day are just so damn arduous! I’m traveling all over the city so am using many different lines at all times of day. Before this trip, I mostly just used the 4/5/6. Very straightforward. Now I’m moving between Brooklyn, the Lower East Side, and the Upper East Side for my home, and finding myself often up in midtown west or down in SOHO or Greenwich Village for fun. And it always takes me longer than I plan to get there. Why? Being distracted and getting on the wrong train, nearly missing the right train because it’s down a level on a practically secret platform, getting on the right train but unknowingly the express that zips 40 blocks past my desired stop… shit, we’re crossing a bridge. Argh!!!
