About Me

My name is David, and I ride the Long Island Rail Road to Manhattan, NY 3-5 days per week. Once in Manhattan, I sometimes take another form of transportation, such as the subway, PATH, or bus to an office, either mine or that of a client.

My train ride is typical for the tri-state area. An express train gets me to Penn Station in about 45 minutes.  Overall one-way commute, door to door, is about one hour and twenty minutes. Tell anyone in the NY metropolitan area that's your commute time and you'll be met with a blank stare that says, "typical." Tell someone from outside the area and he will recoil in horror and wonder why anyone would subject himself to this.

Well, I'm a born and raised New Yorker, and my roots run pretty deep, so here I stay. You can get used to pretty much anything. I'm pretty observant, and I enjoy people-watching. So, a blog is born.

Thanks for the interest. I'd love to hear from you! Shoot me an email with thoughts, comments, praise, anger, whatever. All feedback is good feedback. Ways to reach me:
