I remember riding NYC subways when I worked there during June, July and August....back in about 1966........

Hot, muggy, crowded, sweaty subways..... 100 degrees out on the streets with the a/c units blowing hot air in your face....... lots of pollution from buses and cars, and incessant noise. People always in a hurry. Dirty sidewalks, dirty streets.


I rode the bus in through the Lincoln tunnel to 42nd street and took the subway...usually to 59th street, then walked to the office at 57th street. On the way home, took the subway up to 175th street, hopped a bus over the GW bridge.

Come 5pm and I was headed home. NO reason to stay in hot NYC.

Good thing you live in the Dallas area now, where it never gets hot! <LOL>
