I too felt great camaraderie with New Yorkers as I walked over the bridge. The Red Cross was handing out water and hot chocolate to pedestrians, and Marty Markowitz was positioned with his bullhorn welcoming Brooklynites back home. It brought a frozen tear to my eye. It wasn't so bad going through it together. New Yorkers can get through anything!
Hi Doug! This could be the start of a new blog or a book. HUGS SONDRA
At times like this, I am exceedingly grateful for my commute from the bed to the desk.
I thought about biking, but the traffic approaching both the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges is so bad that it might be a little dangerous. Plus, cops are stopping cyclists and requiring that they walk their bikes across the bridge. So, I don't think I'd save all that much time, plus it's too cold!
I'm glad someone NY blogger is telling me what's going on! It was great to hear your perspective. Living in a small Southern town, where my office is less than a mile from my apartment, I cannot begin to know how you feel.
Merry Christmas! And stay warm!
