    That map, like most, has commute times by place of residence.  What is more relevant is commute times by place of work.

    Which are high in Manhattan, because it has the highest average annual pay per worker of any county in the country, by far. People will travel farther, or pay more in housing costs to be near, that source of income.  Fortunately, many of the long commutes are via mass transit rather than by car, and thus less taxing.

  • The Epoch Times article is pretty good.  But I’m still not sure what to make of that newspaper, due to other stories like http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/opinion/chinese-communist-party-subvert-democracies-rights-abroad-22317.html

    @disqus_wlgcE8xXNg:disqus- I think both maps are useful for showing different things, no?This map is useful in showing the disproportionately long average commutes endured by many outer borough residents.And while the title implies they are all co
    any also work closer to home.

    Epoch Times is a propaganda organ of Falun Gong, not a real newspaper. Not sure why Falun Gong cares about bike lanes in NYC, though…

    Even though flashing blue lights on SBS truly do violate law, the Ignizio thing pissed me off.  It’s why I started this page:  www.facebook.com/TurnTheSelectBusLightsBackOn (you don’t need a facebook account to use it).

    Like my other activism, I’ve recently had virtually no time to put any work into it, but that’s gonna change soon (starting a different job soon thank GOD).  Please check out the page.
