WSJ: Ferry or PATH?

8/22/2008:

Today, the Wall Street Journal posted an article titled “The Commuter Ferry Is Nice. I Take the Train,” in which reporter Neal Templin discusses the aesthetic and financial differences between the PATH and the NY Waterway Ferry.

While Neal tried to find out if people chose the PATH over the Ferry because they might be “cheapskates,” he missed one major point that goes into the decision making process: Location.

I for one always took the ferry to Manahattan when I worked there, because it was simply closer to where I lived in Hoboken (on top of being a more beautiful “above ground” commute.) The other half of the equation is the location in NYC. Often times, the PATH may take riders right to the doorstep of their job.

What do you take?

A mouthpiece is a person with little or no knowledge of a particular subject but insists on giving advise. And your response of “end of problem” concerning PATHS weekend schedule was a perfect example. Ring a bell? And your latest “make-it-up-as-you-go-along” regarding the name calling was never an issue in all of your responses to me until your more recent response of “having to defend yourself”. Even that got a chuckle from someone. Another stated as how you change peoples screen names to be funny or downright annoying. I think they get the point here. So in all respects… No, It’s not just me. I just won’t be stiffled by your antics. Like I said, you can call me anything you want, I’m really shattered ,ahem. But be advised, that you will be corrected or challanged on any posting that I initiate if you mis-quote me in the future. I will apologize though Tramp for this reply to be so long and winded according to… Read more »

Is it always so hard for you to contribute with something sensible Tranp? Do you always have to be a “mouth-piece”? There are 4 stops prior to 33rd on this uptown line where passengers can get off/on. We don’t all need this ferry to 38th street.[/quote]
I see it says “is it always hard for you to contribute with something sensible “tranp”. I referred to you by name. Although mis-spelled anyone can clearly see it was unintentional. I then asked you if you always had to be a mouth-piece. And you know what? You still haven’t responded.
