I would hope that people wouldn't base their hotel decision on an
assumption that traffic wouldn't be bad.


And in any case, he's wrong. I used to live on 59th st. and 9th.
Avenue, and I work on Chambers, and my work mandated that I have my
car at the job. I guarantee you that (1) the West Side Highway is not
the fastest way downtown at any time of day, and (2) not even the
fastest route will get you from 34th street to Chambers St. in 5
minutes (unless you're including helicopters, of course).


Midtown covers more ground than 59th Street. It goes as far down as
the upper thirties IIRC. That's a mile from 59th Street.

What time did you drive to and from work?


Phil, why should he answer when you refuse to "act maturely" and answer
the same question?

Oh thats right, you never answer questions.

You are the self-appointed and annointed NetCop....YOU ask the questions!!!

ROTFLOL!!!!!

You should perhaps go back and read what I wrote.

What time did you drive to and from work?


7-730AM, 4-430PM. But I also did a lot of driving evenings and
weekends- and even early (i.e., 6AM) Saturday morning it takes longer
than 5 minutes to travel the distance I specified.

I've done it. Maybe not from 59th Street, but I've done it. Early in
the week, after evening rush hour.

Is this thread going to continue after ATM or ARL (see the opening post)
visits the metro area? *There's still almost a month to go!


Don't worry, Phil and Slim will never stop bickering.
