I Do What Google Maps Tells Me To Do

November 3, 2010

I live near the nine subway lines (N, R, Q, B, D, 2, 3, 4, and 5) that all stop at the Atlantic-Pacific station near my apartment, so when I had to meet a friend for an early morning breakfast today at the Clinton Street Bakery on the Lower East Side, I thought it would make more sense to take the train rather than ride.

But Google maps told me that it would take 31 minutes to take the subway, including the walk from the station to the restaurant on the other end. (And that’s if the trains weren’t delayed.) Biking, on the other hand, would only be 23 minutes. So I rode.

Remind me again why more people aren’t giving up their MetroCards for bikes?
