Why Manhattanites loathe the busBy
This afternoon, I had to run an errand during lunch time. I left my office on 9th Ave. between 15th and 16th and walked over to 14th St. As I crossed 14th St. and 9th Ave., I passed in front of an M14D, waiting for the light to change so it could turn onto 14th St. For a brief minute, I thought about taking the bus. I didn’t have much time, and I had to get to 14th St. between 5th and 6th Aves. As I looked down 14th St., I changed my mind and hoofed it. I beat the bus to my destination by a full avenue block. No wonder the M14 always finishes near the top in the Pokey Awards. Anyone who thinks we don’t need dedicated bus lanes is fooling themselves.
