As many of my readers know, every morning I head into NYC to my day job. In order to avoid as much of the commuting hassle as possible, I always try to get a very early start.
That has many advantages, including the fact that I get to bypass the most crowded commuter trains and subways and all of the additional frenetic energy that goes along with them.
One of the other advantages: because of the timing, I more or less get to see the same people in the same subway car every day as I travel from Penn Station to the downtown area. I don’t know where these folks get on, but I do tend to see them every day at 34th Street
