USA - NY to LA - 2001

We didn't use the Metro so often. Our station closed at midnight and was not close. New York's subway was built very early. Many newer systems are wonderfully logical and simple to use. - London for instance. But here you need a detailed map and a lot of transfers to get where you want to go.

Do use this as an excuse to ask the way of New Yorkers. Almost all are very helpful and friendly.

20 years ago almost all Metro cars were completely covered in graffitti - inside and out. It was not pretty. Graffitti artists have no respect for other's graffitti so they paint right over and it was all a dirty brown mess.

No more. The cars were free of private advertising except for a few scratches in the windows done with diamonds. Times are different.

Last breakfast in "our" New York apartment before we moved on.

Other direction - me watching TV. Not something we did a lot of.

Many streets had Bus Lanes and even more had Fire Lanes. The later are free to use unless you hear a siren - and then you should get out of the way real quick.

The first of a little collection of USA fire hydrants found by Lars and myself across the country. This one just off Fifth Avenue and serving a Hotel. The doorman close by obviously kept it newly polished.
