I rather live in a region where I don't have to drive to work and back. I think rapid transit is the way to go.
I hate driving.
during the summer of 2007...I think it was July or August, NYC got about 5-6 inches of rain overnight...I walked from my apt at 151 2nd Ave between 9th and 10th in the EV out to Broadway & E 8th St to take the R up to Herald Sq...just a few stops north...as I started to go down the stairs, I noticed a waterfall rolling down the steps as the whole stop was flooded...taxis were impossible to come by as no one wanted to take the MTA that day...so I waded thru the water, down the steps, thru the turnstile, in about 90 degree heat, and waited for the R train for about 30 minutes. For one reason or another, a "2 Train" showed up and everyone at the stop (all sweaty and smelling like sh*t) jammed into an already crowded train that made no other stops except Herald Sq and I think they said Times Sq would be the next one...a friend of mine lived down in the Financial District and he was headed to Herald Sq as the same time as me and he said F it and walked from the World Trade Center to Herald Sq because there were zero trains running and it was impossible to get a taxi...I think he said it took him a few hours
public transportation, especially in NYC is a suitable way of getting around, but since NYC is island/peninsula...it floods if it gets 4+ inches of rain...to me, I see no value in it...when I left NYC I think the 30-day pass was $77...what is it now like $100+...for more crowded trains and less service? When I lived in Astoria, Queens...I only had the V until 8pm on weekdays (nothing on weekends) and the R only until midnight...and the G train...the ghost train...SMH)

Gotta admit BK does have some nice neighborhoods. Brooklyn Heights is one place I'd love to have a condo or studio. If I were a millionare. In the summer I usually go by Heights Cafe on the corner of Hicks and Montague, then go strolling down the promenade watching the sunset. Very nice place to be.
