This edition of The Chronicles will focus on the scariest aspect of New York according to this Texas girl... the subway!
So, the subway was both intimidating and intrguing at the same time. But guess what? I was a pro at riding the subway by the second day! It was not nearly as scary as I thought. My husband had a great subway app on the phone, and we were only five blocks from Grand Central, so we used the subway daily. We sure didn't have money for cabs! We did take the bus across town as well. You can purchase a weekly pass that is good for both the subway and the bus. Hurry! Trains a'comin'!
The subway stations are not air conditioned, so it gets really hot down there. The subways themselves are, however, nicely air conditioned. We rode all manner of subway... old, brand new, clean, not so clean, uncrowded, wall-to-wall people with standing room only... we saw it all! It turned out to be a great experience!
