It sounds a little crazy – and my daughters think I’m a little strange – but I love the subway! Anywhere in the world – Stockholm, Peking, Paris…and most of all, New York. We don’t have a car in the city and I am SO happy for it! To be honest, I don’t really like cars in the first place, and I feel thankful for being able to live in a place where I actually don’t need one. And anyhow, the monthly cost of a parking space in this city is equivalent to a one-bedroom apartment in Stockholm.
And then I also take “bus number 11” –which was what my dad always called my legs (when I was younger and would ask my dad for a ride he would point at one leg and say 1, and then point to the other leg and say 1). When I am going to meet a friend for lunch or dinner downtown (Soho, Meatpacking & Tribeca are where a lot of popular restaurants are), I always leave an hour early so I have time to walk there. I work at the same time, answer emails, talk and text on the phone. A lot of people think its crazy to even think of the idea of walking from uptown to downtown (7-8 km).
When I’m in a rush or carrying something heavy, I take the subway. Like I said, I love the subway for many reasons, one being the diversity of people you can find. You can find any type of person you can think of –in every subway car.
The girls sit and look at their phone. There are only a few places underground with wifi in this city. Everyone knows where it is and take out their phones at the same time.

If we were sitting in a car today, we would have missed all of this.
