A City with Kinks
People outside of “The City” ask me what is going on with New York. Mostly folks seem interested in whether or not Manhattan is on its way back to normal? The answer I usually give is that it is still the greatest city in the world but it definitely has some kinks.
For example, I have a doctor’s appointment coming up but have to very carefully what means I should take to get there. What is the least dangerous? Taking a car service doesn’t make sense because it is al long drive and expensive. What about the subway? You have to be careful with stations. Some are dangerous.
Uber Changed New York
Then how about the bus? The regular bus, forget it. Aside from the fact it will take a very long time, buses are overcrowded, even in the Pandemic, and you can run into some surly characters spot you and follow you out of the bus. Then there is the express bus. It goes faster with fewer stops but is more expensive. You can still find yourselves in the cross hair of a person up to no good. You might notice I didn’t list cab. This is because they are few and far between these days. Uber and others have caused that.
A Solution Outside of the Box
So what then? I am going to find out if I can meet with the doctor remotely. Makes sense, right? This is after all Home Business DIGITAL!
