avoid route 4
When someone — like the news, the sign on the George Washington Bridge, and your sister in New Jersey — tells you to avoid Route 4 because of Sunday construction in Hackensack…you guys, avoid Route 4. I was coming from Long Island because I’m always convinced it’s going to be shorter to take the train all the way out to my parents, grab the car, and then drive. And it’s not. It’s not shorter at all. The only thing better about it is that I get to be in a private space, listening to music. Or, if I should so choose, to traffic reports trumpeting the fact that I’m not going anywhere because I’m trapped in construction traffic on Route 4.
You think once you’re off the Cross Bronx and over the GWB you’re home free. You’re not.
But at least I missed Mets traffic. And bridge traffic. And…this.
