|This "schedule" says the bus arrives at 9:23! Balderdash!|
|Well, at least we avoided the Times Square traffic.|
|Ah, the classic New York Subway entrance.|
|And the platform - express trains stop on the left.|
After a few minutes of waiting, a Q train came into the station. This is the terminus of that line, and to prove the point, the train put "LAST STOP" on its destination board. It did, however, have one door open in every car, and lots of people got on. It sat there for a while without opening its doors, but then it left along the route - still with LAST STOP on the destination board! Are you serious?
So after waiting for about 25 minutes, an R finally came into the station (after two N's). The ride itself was fine, and we made it down to the South Ferry station - at 10:27. My father and I sprinted up the stairs, pushing past other people as we went. Bursting into the ferry terminal, we made it just as the boat was boarding. Phew.
|I was so excited I didn't even care that the picture was blurry.|
