This is the view from my new apartment in Queens. I get to see the Chrysler building, and Empire from the street. And I love it.
Love the fact that in New York, we get to ride from Coney Island to The Bronx for $2.50.
Love the fact that you can see a dozen various street performers, multiple pieces of art (even inside the trains!), and the most diverse culture in the U.S.
Love that you don’t have spend oodles of money on gas, oil, car insurance, and objects like windshield wipers.
Love the view you get of 5 Pointz when you enter Queens.
Love the view of the water when you go into Brooklyn.
Find your reasons to love the NYC Subway.
If you love something, you’ll treat it better. You’ll care more. Over 100 days, I have developed a deep love of this system, and I’ve discovered a diverse group of people who share my opinions. Starting soon, I’ll be devoting some time with an organization called the Station Alliance, who is dedicated to improving the quality of all of the stations in NYC. I’ll document what I’m doing with them here.
Thank you again for following me for these 100 Days.
