I miss the LIRR
December 9, 2006
I know it sounds weird but I kinda like the commute from Long Island to NYC. There is rhythm and beat to being a LIRR commuter. Yea there are lots of things wrong with the LIRR/ MTA and they pull a lot of bullshit all the time. I used to commute from Long Island to 125th street to go to City College. That time sitting on the train or the subway was nice. I got to drink a coffee and read the paper. Or I could draw in my notebook or just sleep. It was a way for me to slowly wake up to the day, or to detox on the way home. Now I drive 10 minutes to work, and it could be one of the most stressful part of my day. There are trucks and taxis and potholes like you wouldn’t believe. Then I need to find a parking spot. I might even get a flat from all the garbage on the street. Maybe I’m just sick of driving all the time.
